Thank you. I was fortunate to both witness this incredible rainbow as well as photograph it. It was spectacular in person.

On Double Down in the Refracted Rainbows challenge (1 comment in total)

Of those I had a chance to vote for this was my favorite. I think it didn't rate higher simply because the road element is so substantial. It adds to the photo, in my opinion, as does the light on the ground, but it probably lost this shot some points in this particular challenge.

I hope that make sense.

Thanks LaRee!

I'm not around much anymore, so it was really nice to hear from you. I hope you are well and happily snapping away.

My image placed 90th and this one blows it away.

A victim of thumbnail voting I surmise.

Well, part of photography is putting yourself in the right place at the right time, or making yourself available to be in the right place, in case of a happy accident, but that's not the entire formula.

This is not to say I don't appreciate your compliments. I really do. I think my image is a nice photo, and it placed about where a nice photo should.

Thank you.

I think 90th isn't bad placement for this image. The mountain is doing something special, but it's a simple image that really took nothing special on my part other than being there.

Over 400 first place images placed behind this image in this best of the best challenge. I think that's a pretty good showing. I'm pleased that this image was so well received.

Thanks again for your comments.

I thought I recognized this cliff dwelling. I was there about 15 years ago.

On Mt. Hood in Spring in the Old Manual Focus Prime Lens challenge (13 comments in total)

Keitha you're more than kind. I really appreciate this compliment coming from you.

I looked at this challenge as an opportunity to show what this old gem can do. It's my favorite legacy lens and it almost always surprises me. I got it off ebay several years ago for $35 and it would take a lot more than that to get it away from me now.

I suppose I'd entertain offers though...... ;)

I shoot this mountain often, and often there is a cloud blowing over the top in a similar fashion. But, I've never seen it mirror the shape of the mountain the way it did in this shot. I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time.........with the right lens. :)

Thanks Dean.

The M135/3.5 is really one of my favorite lenses. So compact, and it has a lovely feel.

Thanks.

Pentax certainly has it's share of nice legacy lenses. I have a few of those too.

What a beautiful shot. A well deserved high place in this challenge, but the real gift is having this wonderful shot of your daughter. The light and soft warmth of this image make it a real keeper.
