Some atmospheric shots of the Nice observatory wreathed in clouds with a rainbow stretched over it.
The full rainbow wasn't visible but the clouds and light were very dramatic.
The rainbow didn't last long - it just faded over a cuple of minutes . The clouds around the observatory dissipated quite quickly too.
I've had the Rainbow theme tune stuck in my head since I took these photos the other evening. Its always some madly annoying song , never something I actually like.Rainbow was the UK's answer to Sesame Street in the 70s and 80s and it now has a sort of cult following. There are lots of clips on YouTube of the puppets Zippy, Bungle and George and the very odd-seeming human presenters.
You can even find the infamous risqué 'twanger' sketch that was filmed as an in-house joke but never ever broadcast.
