It rained heavily when I was driving home this evening. I had not taken today's Project 365 photograph yet and was wondering what it was going to be. Suddenly the sun appeared and I noticed that a rainbow was forming. I was on the motorway and so I could not stop. I decided to stop at Leicester Forest East services, which were about fifteenminutes away and hope that the rainbow would still be visible. Fortunately it was. I took about 20 shots very quickly as it was raining quite heavily and I did not want the camera to get too wet. I thought about cropping the lamp post out of this shot but decided to leave it in as it helps to give a sense of scale to the image.
