Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds
I thought of this image immediately in response to this week’s photography challenge prompt, rule of thirds.
It was taken over a year ago, when I was living and working in Stockholm, Sweden. It was one of those endless Scandanavian midsummer nights and I was out celebrating the end of term with a group of teachers in a bar on Skeppsbrokajen over looking Saltsjön.
Suddenly the sky turned black and there was a huge thunderstorm. Everyone sheltered inside the bar while the rain fell, then through the steamed up windows, I noticed this perfect double rainbow had appeared and covered the entire Stockholm skyline. I got absolutely soaked taking the photograph, but it was worth it – this is still one of my favourite photographs of my time in Sweden.
