Black Tor by Alex37 Black Tor by Alex37
I was standing in position to shoot the clouds over Black Tor when a feint rainbow appeared in just the right location. Sometimes you just get lucky!

The subtle rainbow is the essence of this image, without it it wouldn't be anywhere near as appealing. Nicely captured Alex!

One of my favourites from you yet. Was this Black Tor by Leather Tor or the one further north?
