On a recent trip to Mungo an ancient lake that has been dry for 15,000 years in the Little Desert area of NSW, with David Hibberd and Wayne51. Dave and I were checking our images and waiting for some better light when this rainbow appeared.

Mungo National Park, NSW, Australia.

Canon 7D, Canon 15 – 85mm IS USM Lens.

    Great shot Steve. I reckon the moon probably looks like this, without the bow.
