Fantastic! LMAO. And I wouldn't change a thing! Love the layers and subtle colors.

Thanks Slobodan. Coming from you I take that as a real compliment. But check the copyright. This one is from 2011.

I've lived in the Rockies since 1965. If I subtract 4 years for overseas tours that means I've been looking at Pikes Peak and the Rockies for 44 years. I've never seen the mountains look the same twice.

Btw, are you saying you did not crop this one? If not, looks like a rather strong telephoto.

Try harder.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Just kidding. I like it fine, with its subtle color palette, the way it is.

It was at 300mm Slobodan. No crop.

1. With the right crop, it could be a really fine photograph.

2. Your chosen uncropped version is the right crop.

3. Bravo!

Thanks Eric and RG. Here's a shot at 72mm from about a minute earlier. The light, the rain, and the haze were changing rapidly and the whole thing was gone about five minutes later. I had a 28-300 on my D3, and I made a series of shots. The hand of man is there, Slobodan in the second picture (Rockies 3). I was shooting from my second son's house -- about five blocks on up a hill to the east of my place. He has a splendid view of the mountains. My own house is in sight on this side of the near ridge just to the left of center.

Thanks David. Here's another from the deck outside my studio, looking east toward my second son's house. His house, from which I made the mountain shots, is the one with the white upper section just inside the right side of the rainbow.

OK. Wow! Now I have to learn how to capture rainbows! The dark background certainly enhances the contrast. Any other secret tips? I am projecting, but I also enjoy capturing nature's artistry off of my back deck overlooking the Great Salt Lake and appreciate not only how ever changing the "subject" can be, but also that it is essential to have the camera ever ready!

The dark background is the kind of thing HCB meant when he said, in effect, it's all luck, you just have to be receptive. It's the storm that produced the rainbow. In the Rockies weather systems almost invariably move from west to east. Clouds form when the western slope of the mountains lifts the atmospheric water. Unfortunately, most of the rain falls on the western slope during the lift, but this time we got some rain.

But did you have to do anything with filtering to catch the rainbow? Like a polarizer or is this just straight TTL?

Straight ttl. Lift the camera, frame, and shoot. Dynamic range is pretty wide but the D3 handled it. A small amount of slider movement in ACR and that was about it.

Bravo for the first shot, Russ: it's wonderful exactly as it is.

Yes it does. And it helps to have the camera handy, the film-holders loaded, and the plates coated.
