Views from a rocky mountainside above Clyde and Earnscleugh, Central Otago. Yesterday, Hawksburn Road. New Zealand.
After an appointment I walked out to find a wonderful rainbow - it's hung about for hours. These pics were taken from home. It changes continually depending on the sun/drizzle levels. Fades away.. returns. Fun!
