Photographer's Note

This picture was taken near the top of Mountain Wellington (elevation 1270 meters). The city under the rainbow is Hobart, the largest city in Tasmania. Later December is a summer time in Australia. However, when we drove up to the top of Mountain Wellington, it was windy and snowing with freezing cold temperature. We could not see anything more than 50 yards away. The winter weather at the top of Mountain Wellington made a clear contrast to the summer warm weather in Hobart.

On the way back to Hobart, not far from the top of Mountain Wellington, I took a few pictures. This is the only one presentable.

Later I learned that the rainbow location is about the finish line for the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, a photo of the start of that race is shown in my earlier posted Full Sail Fleet".

Note: I use the title not only because of people calling Australia as Down Under, but also that this picture has the rainbow down under the cloud and the view level.
