SkyWatch Friday: Rainbow


I have shot a great many rainbow shots but so far none to my total satisfaction.

This image is my latest effort; still trying but not there yet.

For more Skywatch and to join in on the fun post your skywatch image then visit Tom and sign up on Mr. Linky.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Salty,
I sure do like that one. I like the contrast in the color of the hills and in the shades of grey in the clouds. I get the feeling this was a very large rainbow!

Lara said...

these are hard to catch, but you did a great job. and besides that, just think about the pure beauty of a rainbow! great!

Larry D said...

Wonderful photo, great rainbow.

Sharon said...

Great catch! That is a beautiful rainbow.

Anna said...

This one turned out really nice. It's hard to capture those rainbows.

April said...

What a pretty rainbow! I'm always happy when I see one.

Suzanne said...

This is a perfect photo. Rainbows have their own magic. Happy SWF.

Carletta said...

I've tried myself - but I think we're just supposed to capture the best we can and then enjoy the moment!
I think you did a great job and I like the bright spot in the corner.

I guess there wasn't a pot of gold; but I guess you wouldn't show a photo of that if there were one! :)

Shellmo said...

It's been a while since I've seen a rainbow - thanks!

Unfortunately Tom is on bed rest today and for the first time you are stuck with me. I have my orders to visit as many as I can, and make sure the links are working and everyone is being good. I am sure you are all being good.
Tom and I thank you for Sky-Watching this week. I am sure that as soon as Tom's heart beat settles down he will be back here and visiting.

Rainbows are elusive. When you get a good one, it's almost as if it decided it was OK that time. This is beautiful, even if you don't think you are there yet. I'm sure I could have done not as well!

Hope you are having a great Sky Watch Friday!

Best regards, Don

Hi Salty! I think its perfect. I was able to get a picture of a rainbow last week, but it is no where near as good as yours. I think its beautiful. Lisa

I like the bands of darker clouds across the top third of the picture. It really creates a mood.

bobbie said...

I love your rainbow. I think that the darker sky as background makes the colors stand out more vividly.

quinttarantino said...

marvellous!

Rose said...

Beautiful.

Hallo from north Norway. Last week I saw all Sky Watch Friday photos and they were all great, and I hope to see them all this week too. I love to travel around the world this way.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful sky watch and have a great weekend!

Julie said...

The angle of this rainbow is most unusual. Methinks it will be very tall but not very far across. You have captured it very nicely. I do like ...

lv2scpbk said...
