THE new Weymouth Tower is framed spectacularly by a rainbow in a weekend of changing weather.

Mark Probin captured this striking image on Friday evening as the sun was setting.

Weymouth resident Mark, 39, said: “I was walking up Bond Street and I could see the tower lit up and I thought light was being projected onto it.

“I noticed a rainbow. It was only there for a few minutes and I took a picture with my mobile phone.”

It came on a weekend which brought mixed weather including blue skies, sunshine, heavy rain and hail.

The Weymouth Tower’s viewing gondola is currently being tested and the attraction is set to open ahead of schedule on Friday, June 22.
