During early spring, the riverbanks near our Devon house are covered in snowdrops. It’s such a pleasure to see them, as they are a sign that warmer weather is on the way.
I was, as I often am, out with a camera one evening when it started to rain. Wearing wellies but otherwise unsuitably dressed, I scrambled down the riverbank to take refuge under a section of trees. It was then that the sun broke through and created a vivid rainbow across the fields. Seeing a chance, I waded further in the river to try and photograph the snowdrops. It was a difficult task, as the ground underfoot was slippery and the camera was quickly saturated, but luckily I did manage to get a few snaps which weren’t ruined by raindrops on the lens.
