Having seen Ferryside from the other side of the Towy estuary, I was intrigued. I made the most of an early afternoon finish at work and headed down there.
On arriving and parking up, I saw this view. I knew I had to move fast. I didn’t have time to get my Nikon out of the boot and affix the ideal lens, so I just ran across the beach and took shots on my Lumix compact, wiping the rain off the lens in between shots. In less than a minute, the rainbow began to fade.
I think it goes to prove two things:
1) The best camera is the one you have with you (ie the one that allows you to capture the shot before it disappears)
2) Bad weather is your friend. It’s on the edges of rain and sunshine that the most dramatic light happens.
