Thursday, the 20th of August 2009, we went to my hometown, Nijmegen, one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands. We went there for the funeral of a friend of us. She died after a long illness from cancer, only 62 years old.
It was a very warm and sunny day. After the funeral we went home. On the highway, there was a heavy thunderstorm. After a while the sun was broken through again, and gave us this beautiful rainbow…. (it was near Veenendaal).
This image is not photoshopped! These are the real colours!
Unfortunately I couldn’t shoot the rainbow in its entirety. The bow was all round and clear and double. Wonderful and very impressive, such beautiful colours and the contrast between the in~ and outside of the rainbow.!!!
