A photographer in England took a once-in-a-lifetime shot of a sailboat going through the end of a beautiful rainbow, precisely where the bright light touches the water’s surface.
Chad Powell, a 30-year-old photographer living on the Isle of Wight, was photographing near Yarmouth when he observed a spectacular rainbow across the lake.
He hastily retrieved his camera and managed to get a stunning photograph of the sailboat drenched in the arch’s light.
Powell recalls, “I observed the lone boat out on its own to the right of the rainbow, and I quickly jumped out and grabbed my picture just as the boat sailed directly in line with the rainbow.” “It’s an optimistic image; I like how the rainbow illuminates the boat’s sails.”
Powell’s photograph proves that there is a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow.
“There wasn’t a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow,” the photographer adds, “but it was a beautiful moment.”
The Right Place at the Right Time
Eunice and Franklin, two named European windstorms, wreaked havoc on the UK during the previous two weeks, destroying houses and damaging landmarks in their wake. After the storms passed, the weather became calmer, which is ideal for rainbows.
Powell garnered accolades for his uncommon photograph as well as queries about whether the photo was real or the result of Photoshop fakery after uploading it on social media.
Powell, on the other hand, has a knack for being at the right place at the right moment. Powell Gallery & Shop in Newport, Isle of Wight, is managed by him as a fine art landscape photographer.
Jan Ward, a social media commentator, comments, “Absolutely correct location and time…” “You’ll have to battle back against those who yell ‘Photoshop,’ but your track record indicates you always know where to be.”
