Back in January (2013) I did a long over due trip back to my home state of Perth to visit family and to also photograph the city and fill my on line gallery.
This shot was taken early in the new year. I had been trying to get a shot of the nearby boathouse, but everytime I drove past their was someone already set up waiting for either sunrise or sunset. On this particular evening the boathouse was once again occupied and it was a blessing in disguise. I had noticed that there was a lot of cloud over the city and it was starting to colour up and I had even seen what was the makings of a light rainbow.
I headed over near narrows bridge and by now the rainbow over Perth City was in full show and to river bank started to draw spectators. Was certainly a rare opportunity for me, especially when I was only in Perth for such a shot time. Funny enough the angle the boathouse was on missed everything, totally clear skys.
