7/15/2006: Rainbow and lightning

Two natural items you don't normally see together - is this an IotD theme? (Ref. yesterday's horses and foal, that is...)

Axlrosen finds these beauts, via the British Daily Mail, although the skies pictured are those of Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Sadly the Mail only offers one of the three shots in larger resolution. It would be great to see the really full-resoution versions.

This is really awesome!
And very rare, indeed. How many chances does one get to see this in person? Let alone have the opportunity to photograph it. I'm saving these shots. Thanks!

For me, photographing lightning is astonishingly difficult. I'm batting zero. The extra rainbow in these beautiful pictures is just showing off. Exquisite find, axlrosen.

xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jul 15 03:13 PM

Wow, they're beautiful.
I've been collecting lightning images for about 3 years. Not taking them, just collecting other peoples efforts.
That is only the second I've seen....below is the first.

capnhowdy  Saturday Jul 15 03:49 PM

saved that one too.

BigV.... I've tried for years. To no avail.

Elspode  Saturday Jul 15 04:39 PM

The coloration of the sky is quite similar in Bruce's and Axl's shots. Must be some rather narrowly similar conditions that allow this to be seen. That, and a similar viewing placement, since rainbow are dependant upon the placement of rain, sun and viewer being just so.

(hahaha this is SUCH a fun song to sing in the car... my family does it rather often, each of us singing one of the parts... and the scariest part is when my mother starts headbanging during the headbanging part, while attempting to drive...)

Thanks, findpolitics...nice collection. Did you take any of them?

findpolitics  Wednesday Jul 19 01:11 PM

I wish I did .... I stole them all from around the internet.

xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jul 21 08:52 PM
