Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge; Rainbow Colours

I’ve never taken part in this photo challenge before, but the topic Rainbow Colours, well that’s me 🙂

My handbag, my purse, my laptop bag, my coat, all my clothes are rainbow colours, and the colour scheme in my house is, well, chaos.

I love taking photographs of rainbows, and this one really caught my eye recently.  We were flying to Egypt, about to land in Sharm El Sheikh, and this was the view from the window of the plane.

I had to take a photo or two.  The quality is not great, my compact camera through a dirty plane window, but it was such a stunning sight, and unexpected for Egypt, we expect clear blue skies 🙂

    Your photos turned out beautiful in spite of the dirty window. You never know what will happen when you try.

      Thank you, I did a lot of cropping with these to remove the worst of the ‘blobs’ from the photos, and I took lots of them as I knew it was going to be hard to get a clear one. I just wanted to share the amazing skyline

    I’ve never seen a rainbow from up in the air. Must be gorgeous.

    Is that really the logo for the airline? Reminds me of a winking smiley face.

      Thanks, I like the third one too, but unfortunately it is the one with the most ‘blobs’ on it from the dirty window & my scratched camera lens. I’m just glad I had any camera to be able to capture the view, it was spectacular
