RAINBOW
 



     
 


No divine drawing in the sky this time, just a natural phenomenon over Gurney Road at 7 pm just now.

Story: Somewhere under the rainbow
When I caught this unexpected rainbow overhead, I made a frantic dash to the car to get a wider lens. Fortunately, I was at an open area without much trees or buildings. While the E-1 body and the wide angle lens are usefully splash proof, raindrops kept accumulating on the front element as I pointed the camera upwards. In between rapid dabs with tissue, I fired off a series exposures manually bracketed from +0.5 to -1 EV. The beautiful arch bowed out in less than 5 minutes.

If you look carefully, you can see the secondary rainbow above with reversed sequence of colours (enhanced close-up shown on left pic).
