Koko Rainbow

This brilliant rainbow of colors radiated at just the right time as we approached the top of the trail - my friend attempted to photograph it with a cellphone but it did not compare with this photo that Ruth graciously provided from her camera.

As for the previous hillside photo, I used a cloning technique to duplicate a house in the middle of the pic and cloned it to the bottom right side of the picture - its so subtle, you will probably not notice the cloned houses!

there's a saying once you walk underneath the rainbow your wishes will come true =)

And did you find the pot of gold? Or is that going to stay your little secret? :)

Kala, Grat shot! Congratulations to Ruth. Is she also a blogger??

Photoshop? I'm curious: how many people enjoy the alterations and how many do not? I'd love to know.

Tell me this is photoshopped, otherwise I will really finally move there. This is so so sooo beautiful, like a fairytale country.
