Tonight we had a thunder storm with a rainbow and a dog (echo) generated by the setting sun.

It even attracted the attention of some passing UFO's.

(Actually, before you all run screaming in terror, they're raindrops on the lens...)

But for the second photo which has come a little brighter, these are very nice photos that make you feel you are there - the dark clouds, the sunlight,the shadows and finally the rainbow - I can feel the breeze and moisture in air. Good work!

Hi idle,

This is the best one could manage in the given secnerio. Like electric pole ,upper left corner shadow,most likely it is roof.

So what I would do had I been in your place .May be I cross the street and go behind the house across the street and avoid the electric poleand take a wide angle -------snap

Yes, the shadow would be the roof — I could of course paint it out.

Unfortunately, the houses across the street just have more houses (and trees, power poles etc.) behind them, all are uphill from me, and usually the back yard gates in this area are locked.

Besides, rainbows here are often only visible for moments (we're in the middle of a major drought), and at 82 I don't walk as fast as I once did...

Most of the pix are wide angle (Raynox 6600Pro) on FZ20 — I took a bunch of shots with auto bracket set, which is the best way to ensure at least some usable pix.

I don't think i have ever got a rainbow shot yet, good work. My favorite is the fourth one, I like the little spot of sunlight on the brick wall.
