This is perhaps the most photographed landmark / sea-mark in the North East of England, it’s Saint Mary’s Island at Whitely Bay. I was driving along the sea front road when I saw the most intense rainbow I’d ever seen. I decided to drive further to see if I could align it with the lighthouse and surprisingly that happened as I go to the car-park – result? However, the traffic was slow and prevented me making quick progress so when I reached the “sweet-spot” the rainbow was fading. However, a little underexposure helped the image somewhat I think.
