Lacey Spring Rainbows

| 0 comments

Over the years I have tried to take many photographs of rainbows during or after storms, but mostly with unsatisfactory results, as full rainbows are infrequent and they are difficult to photograph. Other than rainbows in less expected places (like appearing between tall buildings in Niagara Falls or beside waterfalls), my efforts have not resulted in photographs that I would print and frame. During the past year I have printed several of these efforts, but have never mounted any because of my dissatisfaction with the result.

Earlier this week we had an early evening rainstorm which produced a large double rainbow. Beverly had gone outside immediately after the rain mostly stopped and called me out to see the rainbow. I tried to take pictures from the front of the house but couldn’t get a good location because I was too close to some trees. I took the featured image from the top of a bank in the back yard to avoid the trees. This rainbow may become an exception to my previous difficulties with rainbow photos.
 
The featured image is an HDR panorama made from 9 separate photos; it consists of three HDR images merged into a panorama. Each HDR image is made from three identical images taken at different exposures. (For an explanation of these techniques, please see the Definitions page.) I should mention that the rainbow was so large that each image was taken with the widest angle lens available to me and it took three photos to capture it.

Update – 7/6/19

Yesterday evening we had more evening storms and were blessed with a partial double rainbow – partial in that it was visible close to the ground but not much anywhere else. I was able to photograph the two ends separately and the two images are at the end of the gallery in Additional Images. Both of these images are HDR images made from three photographs.
