Usually when I see a Rainbow I am in my car on my way home from somewhere, wishing I had my camera with me so I can get pictures of it. Instead I try to use my cell phone camera while driving – not good. Yesterday, I saw this big beautiful rainbow while I was driving home. With not being to far from home, I bravely sped through our cop infested sub division so I could get home to my camera before the rainbow decided to go back into hiding, only to laugh at me again until its next appearance. At approximately 7:02pm, I skidded into my parking spot, ran upstairs to our condo, busted in the door to find my husband with a big smile saying “did you see that rainbow!? Are you going to get… hahaha! I thought so!” as I ran into our office to grab my camera. Yes! I finally made it in time to get a picture! This is the view of the rainbow as it arched over our lake. This image is actually compiled up with 10 photographs that were taken and stitched together to make this panoramic view, thanks to magic of the photomerge tool and the use of some of my photoshop skills. And that, fellow photographers, is why we should always keep a camera in our car.

Here you can see an example of how Rick taught me a little about perspective.
I also learned how to take an out of focus picture :)
And here is a beautiful landscape. I had to use the bridge to sturdy my camera because I didn’t have a tripod with me, adapt and overcome right!? The blue added a nice night time feel, so I decided to keep the color that way. I also added some texture around the edges.
Rick is a great teacher! Go check out his blog here to learn more about him.
After our visit to Black Mountain, NC, Mike and I stayed with my grandmother in Franklin, NC. Here are a few images I shot to showcase what we saw while we were there.
