Snake River Rainbow

I drive through the snake river canyon every day going to and from work. I left to work early one day to get a picture of this tree at sunrise. Much to my disappointment is was very cloudy and rainy that morning. I was actually leaving without taking any pictures when I noticed the rainbow forming and snapped this photo.


It's not a great photo but it makes a pretty decent water color.

Re: Snake River Rainbow

Alan, that is very pretty. Nice colors and good composition. The rainy sky gives it a lot of interest I think.
Did you take any other pics that day? It would be fun to play with the hills and valleys with the PWL technique.

Re: Snake River Rainbow

Tough assignment to manipulate this nice image and keep the subtle rainbow. So I just ran a little Buzz and let it go at that.

Re: Snake River Rainbow

Gorgeous photo. It's been too many years since I was up your way. I too feel you are blessed to live in the area of the country you do. The variety, and the sheer vastness of it all must give you lots and lots of photo ops. Feel free to submit pictures for the rest of us to enjoy any time!!!!!!

Re: Snake River Rainbow

Alan, great photo, but in playing with this it appears that it was a DOUBLE rainbow. Look closely in the upper left corner and a faint rainbow is evident. I found it when playing with HSL adjustments and levels.

Re: Snake River Rainbow

Ram, wellcome.
To attach photo scroll down to "manage attachements" button.

Alan,
I take a ticket to say "nice photo"
Started with enchacing it.
Unfortunately given the original compression plus another jpeg comprression I lost some detal, still like the result.
