Solar Snapper

After several grey days, it was nice to see some sunshine at lunchtime today. As it was sunny, I opted for a different route to stretch my legs, and explored a tiny single-track road called Squirrel Lane. It’s along that lane that I passed a field of solar panels, clearly earning their keep today. The perfect Snapper Simon photo, I thought.

While standing on the roadside verge, composing my shot, I felt a few spots of rain caress my cheek. Must be from the overhead trees, I thought. They were still wet from earlier this morning. But, if you look carefully at the photo, you might spot a rainbow.

And I have to say, I was delighted when Shefali picked it as a WeatherWatcher photo at the start of BBC Midlands Today this evening!

And the same photo was used again in the regional weather forecast, during the regional new bulletins of BBC Breakfast on 11th February 2019
