Storm Approaching.

By jeanie      
This is the same rainbow that I uploaded yesterday, taken on Friday afternoon, although this was taken first, when the squall was right over us, and the black clouds/hail have totally wiped out the view to Ben Lomond and the far shors of the loch.......

It's dark but, hey - it's how it was at the time.. amazingly I never had to do much with this one by way of removal of rain spots on the picture. I have others in my file that are splattered... fell lucky here. : )

Hope I managed to capture the mood as it was at the time...

1/3 sec @ F/14, ISO 100, CP and 121s Grad and of course all the tools mentioned yesterday : )

I'd say that you've done a pretty darn good job of capturing the mood of the day here J. Excellent work, love the muted tones in this and that little splash of red from the lifesaver.

Thanks Mike, Neil, Dave, Fran, Dave, Mark and Ali.

One good thing about the rain and approaching squall was that it saw off the Blue Rinse Brigade that had commandeered the jetty!

I was passing here going North on Friday and hoped that you had resisted the temptaion to go to the pub, there was a huge rainbow across the Loch, maybe this was it?

All the very best Jeanie

Hi Dougie - yes we were very good and kept Dougie away from the bar : )

This was taken at 1445, and was the second or third rainbow we were lucky to watch..
Shame we never got to meet up really, being as we crossed paths.

Hi Liz and Patrick. Thank you.

It certainly was not warm Patrick but I did have plenty of clothes on to keep me warm, and was in good company having a laugh so the cold did not bother me.

The contract on Paul has been cancelled as he showed me how to do HDR........however, having seen your RAW images and how good they are I now think it is you that is too good to live.
