Double rainbow, near Shieldaig, Wester Ross

Would you believe I actually planned this shot? I rushed to get ahead of a storm front, aware that as the storm clouds passed sun would illuminate them from behind and we might get a rainbow over this scene. We had been shooting this view earlier, and got soaked as the rain passed by just beforehand - but were awestruck as the most intense rainbow I've ever seen appeared right in front of us. You can actually see rain falling in the centre of the picture.
