All about rainbows

When I think back over the years I don’t recall seeing many complete rainbows, and what I mean by that is beeing able to se the whole rainbow from on end all the way to the other. In the latest couple of years I’ve seen many though, which I find kinda strange. They are usually not only complete but also very clear, where I have seen two and sometimes three arcs closely together.

I love rainbows, and enjoy the thought about there being something mysterious about them. I’m sure most have heard tales about how treasures can be found at the end of the rainbow.

I always try to cease every opportunity to get a nice photo when there is chance of a rainbow. I’m really proud of what I got so far, but still always looking for more beautiful moments to capture. My dream is a rainbow over a bridge over a lake… *drool-smiley*

Amazing summer skies

The last couple of weeks the colors in the sky have been truly amazing. I often find it hard to take a photo that resembles my experience of what I see. These few photos though, I think are quite accurate in terms of color and composition of what I saw.

I will however try again this evening with my Samyang 14 mm wide angle lens to see if I can capture even more of the experience. These photos were taken with Canon’s 50 & 100 mm.
