Best 2017 Picture
The sun should have been rising to my right and behind.
In other words I am facing West roughly speaking.
I had packed my tripod and long lens away
and was about to walk back to the car
when this rainbow appeared.
For only two minutes.
Had I not had a back up camera, with a shorter lens,
I would not have been able to capture the few shots I did.
A few months later I ventured over to Melbourne’s St Kilda Pier.
A draw-card for tourists and photographers alike.
I confess to editing this a bit to capture the stormy winter sky.
But I am pleased with the outcome.
In between those two shots was our
wedding anniversary hot air balloon flight
I will probably never take this shot again
and it is one I would like to enlarge.
However, I will always remember
our 30th Wedding Anniversary by this shot.
However, the shot I am most pleased with is not one of mine.
Followers may remember that I visited France and Belgium
and spent three days touring
the Western Front Battlefields of World War I.
Because my Grandfather served on the Western Front
and Fired the First Allied Shot of World War I.
