This is actually a bit too sweet for my taste, I love rainbows but I particularly love them against dark skies... I thought I'd upload something cheery after the more doomy Shadow and Flame photo. I'll make up for this one with plenty or stormy photos.

We went rainbow chasing! And hell yeah, that's as badass as it sounds.

Location: Isle of Skye, Scotland.
Post processing: I upped the contrast, combined a darker image with a lighter image to darken the sky and I reduced the noise.


My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…

This does go back to the fantasy feel of so many of your forest photos!  The castle really speaks to that, with the rainbow...But it's very magical in an unexpected way, with the way the clouds skim over the farther peaks, and how it sort of curls under on the left, just behind the ridge--in contrast with the relatively straight line of the rainbow touching it diagonally~~

I don't like cheery senses either sometimes, but this really is beautiful.

Very beautiful. Lovely mix of light and dark colors, especially the red field contrasting with the dark green of the trees in the foreground. The sweeping vista at the back completes the image.
