Last Night’s Rainbow

by Todd Smith on June 6, 2008

As I was buttering my last chapati and about to sit down to dinner Blaine commented on the unusual light out the back door and his mom said there should be a rainbow.

Holy wow! I’ve never seen a rainbow like this one. It was bright and clear from end to end. Needless to say, I dropped everything and headed out in the rain with my camera. Here’s the view from our back deck.

And here it is by a grassy field down the road.

You can see a few more shots in the Straight From The Camera Section of this site.

Have a great weekend!

P.S. The Framed Prints section of my site is temporarily down. I am in the process of restructuring the site. I’ll keep you posted.

Yeah, it was amazing light. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. I love getting lucky! 🙂

Todd, these are incredible! Checked out Straight From The Camera and love the sunlight catching edges of trees. Very nice composition on all of them. For some reason, in some of the photos, the cloud formations are reminiscent of sprinklers spewing jets of water to nourish crops in farmlands.
