Rainbow in Dublin

🏆 WINNER | A Day in the Life Category 

"Before I took that photo I was taking my family up to Dunluce Castle and it was raining heavily (as per usual in Ireland). I was worried that the trip was going to be ruined. But when we arrived at the castle, the rain cleared up and what followed it was a perfect rainbow placed perfectly over the castle ruins."
