    Default Storm and rainbow at sunset

    We had a nice wee storm blow through Christchurch this evening not long before sunset. I grabbed the camera and whipped out to North Beach and took a few photos of some very changeable light! Winter is definitely getting closer as the southerly had a very cool chill to it. The rainbow was one of the brightest I've seen in a long time. Click through the panoramas for larger versions.

    Thanks all!

    Yes the light was pretty amazing last night as the storm came through about an hour before sunset, hence I decided to go and camp out at the beach and watch. The storm ended up passing south of me by a good 5-10km so whilst it was cold, hardly suffered any rain at all. I just wish we had a few more come through - Christchurch doesn't seem to get enough nice photographic storms

    Here are a another couple of shots of the same storm from another DPS member.
