Rainbow over Cows and Stirling Castle

I was driving along a country road in central Scotland, approaching Stirling, with the city’s castle looming in the distance on top of a steep cliff. As I admired the dramatic view, a rainbow appeared directly ahead of me, bathing the castle in pastel hues. I immediately found a place to pull over so I could get out of the car and take a photo. As luck would have it, the place I found to park was adjacent to a field in which a herd of black cattle was grazing. I positioned the cows in the foreground of my photo to add another dimension to the the scene and make the image more interesting.

    Your beautiful photo took me back to the last time I saw Stirling Castle. I was still shooting film in those days, and I managed to shoot five rolls of the castle, Banockburn, the Trossachs and Loch Lomond. I dropped the film off at an hour-photo in Edinburgh and packed to leave for London. I was back in the States before I realized that I had left all five rolls at the photo place by Waverly Station. Lost a week’s worth of good shots in perfect sunlight.
