The weather was perfect for rainbow chasing.
Sunshine and Showers
To create a rainbow you need the sun behind you and rain in front. So sunshine and showers are perfect – aka British weather in September!
High on the Mendip Hills is a great place to watch showers moving across the landscape.
Showers move across the Somerset Levels from Lynchcombe.

At sunrise the centre of a rainbow is on the horizon – so it creates a semi-circle high in the sky. As the sun rises their centre sinks. So in summer, they are best seen at dawn.
Taken last week a dawn rainbow is high in the sky around Glastonbury Tor.
