Blind Freakin' Luck... Double Rainbow with the XT1
6 months ago

A storm system passed through the subdivision I live in this evening. I glanced out the door of my patio and saw this perfect rainbow.. then noticed it was a double rainbow but fading fast.

I ran upstairs to grab my XT1 and took this shot using the 18-55. It wasn't wide enough to get the entire rainbow so I decided to take three shots (handheld) beginning at the left of the rainbow and then stitched them together to produce this shot.

I could kick myself because the ISO was set at 1250. I shot this at 1/1000 of a second. Velvia setting.. but it is what it is. On a day when I thought I would get no photos at all due to the weather I end up with this.

A few minutes later it was gone and the sun had moved behind a cloud to the west.

Always best to view the larger image...

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
