Eiffel's Rainbow

I had set up my camera for a panoramic shot of Pont Bir-Hakeim, just south of the Eiffel Tower. The clouds were fantastic, heavy with rain, but I wanted that perfect burst of sunshine to light up the bridge against their stormy backdrop. I waited — and waited and waited. Instead of the sun breaking through clouds, there was a downpour. Soaked, hungry, lonely, I frantically packed up my gear, my disappointment and frustration as dark as the rainclouds.

Then came the rainbow.

When dark clouds cast their shadows, I just wait patiently for the bow.
