A full rainbow over Icelandic glacial melt

Up to the moment which I pressed the shutter capturing this photo, I had always dreamed of getting to photograph a moment like this. This photo is showing a full rainbow over a river in the West Fjords of Iceland. The conditions were promising for such a sight, and although many people had given up because of the severe rain and winds, I stood my ground; soaked to the core. The anticipation of waiting for this view did not compare to the the beauty of when the moment came and the rainbow showed itself.
