Default Never in front of a beautiful field...

But sometimes you just have to shoot something beautiful no matter what the "rest" of the image looks like. In this instance, from the front porch of my third-story apartment, with my E30 and 9-18 Zuiko..



Then the 50-200..

Wonderful rainbow. It must have been around for a bit of time seeing you were able to change lenses.

It's not very often when you're at the right spot at the right moment with the right camera/lens/etc. to take advantage of the opportunity presented.

I guess that's what makes those shots special.

Greg, nice double rainbow in the first shot, but I would have to say # 2 is my favorite of the series.

Nice capture Greg. Everybody love rainbows.

One of the advantages of living in my area is the many rainbows that we have in our rainy season from June thru August. We have a lot of short afternoon showers, which blow over before the sun sets, leaving great opportunities for eastern rainbows.
If you don't mind, I'll share a few from my backyard.

I'm enjoying everyone's rainbow photos. When I lived in northern Arizona, a rainbow was rare (you actually have to have rain in the air to get one ) but I did shoot this one standing in front of my house. This was taken in 2003 with the E20 and the wide-angle auxiliary front-mounted lens.

Well, I didn't hijack this thread....but since you guys have posted some rainbows, I have one.

I took it back in 2004 using an Olympus C-5060WZ while fishing on Martha's Vineyard. It's not the best photo - quality wise. But, I've kept it because it reminds me of a place I like to be.

I like all of these, but Zig, that's what you call being in the perfect place at the right time. I like.

Well Harj, you have to have sun come out after the rain. The sun is a bright object in the sky that you get to see maybe 2 or 3 times a year. LOL!!

Disappointing.
