The day had been overcast without an ounce of sunlight, and there was no sign of that changing. Most people had given up and headed back to their accommodation, but in the dying seconds when the sun hit the horizon, it found a break in the clouds and the sunlight travelled below the layer of clouds lighting up the rock. Then to top it off, the light misty rain gave us that magnificent full arc rainbow. I’m glad I waited it out! :)
Panoramic stitch of 8 photographs. For the sceptics out there, I assure you the rainbow is not photoshopped in!
