Mt Mee Rainbow

Alas, my polariser was back in the car, on the wrong side of a barbed wire fence, so this is as good as I got.

    I saw a glimpse of this out my window that morning then fell back to sleep :(
    Looks like it was a magic morning!
  • Xenedis said:
    Ah, you got better coverage than I did.
  • David de Groot said:
    Sure was - couldn't have asked for a better morning really.
    17mm just did it, but could have really done with a polariser to bring out the rainbow more.

    nice shot though

    Sorry; by coverage I meant "amount of rainbow". I was shooting at 16mm and could see it all too, but I probably left it too late to capture as much of the colour as you did.

    I see you got the full rainbow - that's pretty incredible lighting in the background - would have made it hard to get contrast out of the rainbow but the sky itself is brilliant

    With a shot like that it can stay there. I like it!
  • David de Groot said:
    Or roll in the nettles ? :-P
    Yep - tough shoot though with those pink clouds there.
    Sure does, the last rainbow I posted was with a polariser, and you can really tell the difference.
    Ah, yeah, this one was one of the first I shot, the others were more faded.
    Yeah, very hard to get the rainbow, but as you said, the sky made up for that ;-)
    Thanks :)
    'tweren't bad ;-)
    Ah, 'twould have been a bit more defined with the polariser.

    I was certain I had already commented on his one ..hmm
    Nice shot Dave, cool composition & love the sky
  • David de Groot said:
    Probably the other rainbow Kath :) Personally I think it needs a cow - a nice black and white Fresian, but the paddock was unoccupied.

    Excellent, good photograph.

    That's a cracker David, can always put a cow in later, if you think you need it. Love it as it is.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :)
    Aye, that's true, probably have a suitable cow somewhere in the archive too.
