Rainbow

Color Me Country

Rainbow, Rural, House, Kewaunee, WI
It doesn’t happen often, but when a rainbow appears it so much better when I can capture it.

On this occasion, I was mowing the lawn when it started to rain.  I turned my mower toward the garage and noticed the rainbow forming.  I parked the mower and dashed into the house for my camera and an umbrella.  I had just enough time to snap a few photos before it dissipated.

This is actually a panoramic image.  I stitched four, portrait oriented images together to capture what you see here.  My camera and lens could not capture a wide enough view to fit all of the rainbow in one shot. I may have been able to capture all of it with a different lens, but I didn’t want to take the time to change lenses and maybe miss the shot.

June Rainbow

Rainbow, Sky, Rural, Wisconsin

This was a rainbow that popped up on an early, mid-June evening.  If you squint, you can kind of see a second band in the upper right corner.

I should have processed it earlier, but just got around to processing it.  I remember, when photographing it, being disappointed that I couldn’t get the whole rainbow in one frame.  It was very tall in the sky.

Algoma Lighthouse Rainbow

These images are some of my earliest, serious photographic attempts to capture of one of my favorite subjects – the Algoma, WI harbor and lighthouse.

This photo dates back to September 28, 1996. It was taken with my Kodak Easyshare DX7590 – a moderate step above a point-and-shoot camera that had a whopping, 5 mega-pixel sensor and a 10x optical zoom.

After a day of working at the church, I started for home. As I drove by the harbor, I noticed the rainbow.  I grabbed my camera and a new toy I had just received as a birthday gift a couple of weeks before – a circular polarizing filter.  It’s the filter that really brings out the colors of the rainbow.

A couple of things I remember from that shoot…  The rainbow was strong and lasted a long time.  I was able to take several photos from different locations around the harbor. Usually, about the time I get the camera out and the filter on, the beauty has faded.

I also remember being concerned about my camera, since there was a light drizzle falling.  I remember crouching under a very small tree to try to keep it dry.
