About the Image(s)

One item that has been on my photographic wish list for some time, has been to capture a good strong, bright rainbow. This was taken back in 2019 (I think) while on a weekend away with a camera club. All members were busy on their computers in a workshop when a friend and I looked out a window and both said "Lights getting nice out there". We excused ourselves from the workshop, grabbed our gear and drove ten minutes to the beach, through a slight shower, to be greeted by this. Details are Sony a850; Sigma 70-300 (at 280mm); ISO 200; f6.7; 1/250 and hand held. Processed in LR & PS. Lesson learnt during that workshop: Cameras first - Computers second - everytime.

I have never seen such and clear, detailed photo of a rainbow. I like the misty horizon but I find the horizontal rock formation less appealing. I actually wish the rocks were not there.   Posted: 10/10/2021 18:09:54

What a magnificent rainbow. The colors really draw you in. I don't mind the rocks, but I might consider playing with the crop some to focus more on the colors of the rainbow......not sure how I would do it.....but you're creative with cropping, give it some thought . You would love Iceland there are unbelievable rainbows there and waterfalls galore!!!   Posted: 10/11/2021 14:36:32
