Photographer Captures Sailboat at Rainbow's End


This is a picture that will never be seen again. A photographer in England took a picture of a sailboat as it passed through the end of a rainbow, right where the rainbow meets the water.

30-year-old photographer Chad Powell was on the Isle of Wight, where he lives when he saw a rainbow formed over the water. He grabbed his camera right away and took a picture of the vessel just as the arch lighted it up.

To the right of the rainbow, Powell saw a single boat out on its own. "I jumped into the water and grabbed my camera just as the boat sailed right in line with the rainbow," he says. "I like how the rainbow shines through the sails of the boat."

There is no doubt that Powell's picture answers the question of whether there is a gold pot at the end of a rainbow.

There wasn't any gold at the end of the rainbow, but it was a golden moment.

This week, the UK was hit by two named European windstorms, Eunice and Franklin, which caused many damages to homes and other things. It was a good time to see rainbows after the storm calmed down.

The Right Time and Place

After posting the picture on social media, Powell got praise and questions about whether the photo was real or a Photoshop fake.

On the other hand, Powell seems to know how to be in the right place at the right time. Suppose you are interested in fine art landscape photography. He owns a gallery and shop called Powell Gallery & Shop in Newport on the Isle of Wight.

An online commenter named Jan Ward says that this is the perfect place and time for them to meet. When people say "Photoshop," you'll have to fight them off. But your record shows that you know where to be.
