Why oh why has this blog post got a French headline? The reason is simple: Arc en ciel means rainbow in French and this picture was taken, yup, you guessed it, on a rainy day in France.
We’ve not long returned from a few days near Boulogne sur Mer in Northern France. The weather wasn’t all that great so I didn’t get out too much with my camera but I did manage to snap this image of a rainbow shortly before there was a full-on storm during which a huge amount of rain fell.
Unfortunately, our car had developed a slightly bizarre fault and was no longer water tight. Once the rain had stopped I went to take a look and to my horror, the footwells in the front were full of water where it had leaked. Needless to say, I had to bale the water out and on our return to the UK, the car was swiftly sent to the dearlership for repairs!
It’s not my best photograph but when I was reviewing the pictures the thumbnail leapt out at me. The picture is a little on the dark side and I did try rectifying this using Photoshop but after a couple of attempts, I decided not too. It was taken shortly before there was a storm so to have lightened up the dark clouds would have removed something authentic from the image.
Did you get away during the summer holidays? Did you see a rainbow like this or have to deal with a flooded car?
