OCEAN RAINBOW by Lynne Royce

August 2020 - OCEAN RAINBOW

About the Image(s)

Since the Jersey Shore overrun with tourists this pandemic summer my husband and I only walk the beach/boardwalk in the rain. When rain stopped during recent outing saw my first ocean rainbow. Love how the rainbow ends on boat which my son says is filled with Leprechauns. Post processed in Snapseed after capturing with my Samsung Galaxy Note8.

Great travel image with the Rainbow ending at the boat.   Posted: 08/02/2020 08:37:52

The layers of differing shades of blue are lovely and the varied clouds provide great depth. The rainbow's end at the boat is a good find. Your son might be right about the leprechauns or maybe it is a boat full of crab or lobster pots and one rainbow's pot of gold! The rainbow seems to offer hope to the empty beach. Nice story.   Posted: 08/04/2020 09:46:58

It's always good to have your camera or in this case phone, with you. Good eye to observe the rainbow appearing to anchor itself on the boat. Good placement of the low horizon. Not sure what those steps(?) are for, but they add scale to the scene. Nicely down.   Posted: 08/04/2020 15:07:50

It's a lifeguard stand that is tipped down when lifeguards off duty. Actually shot lots of pixs and didn't immediately realize I caught a boat right at bottom of rainbow in one of pixs. Pure luck.   Posted: 08/04/2020 15:16:06

I like the way the steps lead up toward the boat/rainbow. It's like they are connected in some way. Good image. Nice colors. The story makes it even better.

I love the expanse of the sky with all of the clouds. A nice bonus to have the rainbow and the luck of getting it ending on the boat. I think the lifeguard stand adds perspective and almost makes the beach seem more lonely. To my eye the horizon doesn't look quite level.   Posted: 08/11/2020 16:43:04

It has several very interesting elements that make it work as a whole. The tiny boat where the rainbow ends, the tipped stand, the interesting sky. The horizon is not level and could be corrected.   Posted: 08/11/2020 18:53:13
