We’ve been getting some great rain storms here in SE Pennsylvania lately. The last two have resulted in perfect rainbow conditions – well almost. The other night we had a beautiful double rainbow right behind our house. Not the best place for it to be. When I finally realized where I should be, it was too late. But the sky was still interesting and I stayed till it got darker.

This area used to be much more rural than it is now. I have had some success in past years working a rainbow into a scene with a great red barn. In fact that image hangs in our township building and was used for a coffee-table book on Bucks County, PA. With development as strong as it is around here, that red barn image wouldn’t be possible today. However, there is a field behind a church where the view is still mostly what it was when I moved here 13 years ago.

Since I missed the rainbow, I was still able to make a few images that have a stormy feeling about them. Lots of atmosphere if you will. The perspective here is fairly wide, about 28mm, which dwarfs the homes reflecting last light of the day.

  1. Thank you Lana and Stacey. I appreciate the support.

    It’s interesting how making an image unexpectedly opens your mind to new possibilities in the future. The feeling in this image is one I want to try to achieve again.
