The low sun and a shower created this lovely rainbow yesterday evening and I tried a couple of shots, firstly with the fisheye conversion, although the focus is suspect. Some nice SN arcs and a hint of a secondary bow.

and then with the 300mm lens.

That fisheye converter looks a tough thing to use, but I do like the effect John. Well caught.

Yuo've been a busy boy with the camera. This is a great shot with the fisheye lens, a great double bow. The intense brightness of the homes really sets things off.

Lovely double bow at a low Sun angle John, the lens really shows the phenomena of to great effect , not too dissimilar to the naked eye. I like the SN arcs and the Sun catching the houses below. The only thing missing are anti crep rays or a stupendous mammatus display.  Smiley
