Colourful rainbow fragment Rainbow over a white horse

It is worth keeping an eye on distant showers as there is always the possibility of seeing part of a rainbow. This fragment was particularly colourful.

This 50 metre long figure of a horse was originally cut into the chalk downs in 1812. One of several such figures in Wiltshire this one lies a mile north of the village of Alton Barnes.
