I found the pot of gold! Was just driving up to the Polderbaan when I spotted a rainbow. I quickly stopped and shot this 747 with 600mm.

Not many can say they were just driving and took out a 600MM lens to take a quick photo. And certainly only a very select few could get this quality shot!

This is fantastic!
But it will be even better if the whole plane is in the picture.

Lucky shot. And what better plane than a Emirates 747 to have in this light! Pretty sharp for a 600 mm. Fixed lens or Zooooom?

Wow, what a beautiful background! But I agree with one of the posters below, the photo would have been even better if the whole aircraft was in the picture. Well done, though!

I can't say much more than "PERFECT"!
How simply perfect.
It dosen't have to be the whole plane, what you have here is awesome. Gold lettering on a 747 right in the middle of the pot of gold part of the rainbow, I mean it's so right on all levels.

Great shot. Probably my favorite of the year. And there have been many good ones this year.
Thanks!!

Something I've never noticed before about rainbows, is that some of the coloration continues in front of foreground objects! Notice the faintly changing color cast in the white of the fuselage.

Stupendous shot.
