Full Rainbow

I have probably seen a dozen full rainbows in my adult life and every time I saw one I wished I had a camera with me. When I did have a camera, the scenery just sucked and photos never came out good enough. This time I thought the pictures came out a little better, but still not exactly what I was hoping for… This is a double rainbow, by the way:

Double Rainbow

NIKON D700 @ 24mm, ISO 800, 1/1600, f/8.0

The full rainbow was huge and my lens was not wide enough to be able to capture the whole thing. I did try some quick panoramic shots, but my panorama stitching software is having a hard time aligning both the rainbow and the landscape on the bottom of the frame…need to play around with Photoshop and see if I can figure out another way of making it work.

Full Rainbow Colors

NIKON D700 @ 70mm, ISO 200, 1/320, f/8.0
