My first ephemeral thoughts turned to rainbows.
They are never the same and
the pot of gold is so elusive.
The cattle may be the pot of gold in this shot.
This rainbow appeared as I was returning to my car.
I had time to grab a camera and take
three or four hand held shots
before this rainbow disappeared.
Barely two minutes in total.
behind neighbours trees.
A slow shutter speed and…
…some editing and I think a reasonable result
has been achieved.
Raindrops on a car windscreen.
Raindrops caused this sight last week.
We have had a follow up rains,
160 points/40mm in total
between Wednesday night and Saturday morning.
It has been like finding that elusive pot of gold.
Flying over an…
Alaskan rainbow between
Coldfoot and Fairbanks.
My contribution for
this week’s challenge
rainbows for some time now.
So, unfortunately these are reposts.
A magic moment
Morning rainbow in the west.
just through the fence.
Rainbow in the west.
I called this series of shots
While only one shot is reproduced here,
after being nearly blown off the pier
this two minutes made it all worthwhile.
Perhaps a bit longer than fleeting, however,
I have heard it said to produce oil naturally
takes perhaps millions of years
which is described as a blink of an eye
Therefore my two minutes of magic is definitely
My contribution for this week’s challenge…
Much of our lawn is now brown,
with some green roots.
Weeds like this bent over for a few days
and now continue to thrive.
The first half decent photo I have taken of
Geelong before sunrise.
Same morning as above, straight out of the camera.
I think the slow shutter speed (1/3 sec)
helped the red show through.
However it is unusual to see
a rainbow, in the west, as the sunrises.
