FLYING INTO MELBOURNE

A few weeks ago I was in Adelaide for work. In the evening on the way back quite a major storm was predicted to cross from South Australia into Victoria. Fortunately it did not disrupt our flight as the storm happened while we were flying over it. However, it was a great opportunity to capture the rainbow when approaching Melbourne and then to enjoy quite a magnificent sunset! Melbourne's changeable weather provides some wonderful photo opportunities.

This post is part of the "Skywatch Friday" meme.

  12. Beautiful sky shots for today Nick, you see so much more from a plane window when you're not afraid of flying and not in a semi induced coma haha! Must have been brilliant looking out and seeing the rainbow from a completely different angle.
