This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

During a magic trip driving round Iceland, it was raining a lot. After crossing over Snæfellsnes Peninsula, everything changed, and these amazing lenticular clouds appeared. After this photo I was followed by a rainbow for about half an hour. One very surreal day.
