Greetin's, Larry. Most kind of you to say so. You've got some pretty good things over in your gallery, too, so don't despair! Thanks for the visits.

Hello to you, Lunjun. I'm glad you like this, and thanks for the nice words.

Hey, hey, Brucie! Thanks for all that. I on this I was probably using the direct sun setting, which is A-B B1, and G-M 0, on my D60, if that means anything to you. I know it means precious little to me. I also use a polarizer almost all of the time, which is a nice little cheat to punch up colors when the sun is at a sharp angle to the lens, and it helps flatten out reflections, too. Does this help at all? Take care.

Howdu, JF. Most kind of you to put this shot in a starring role. Thank you very much.

Hello Again Not1word.Wowwwwwwwwwwwww this is very good.Such brillent colours from this rainbow.I know what you mean about trying to get off the road to find a good spot to take photo of it. In anyway you have a wonderful shot of this one. One morning when I was heading out to the farm, I saw this really strange looking red to orange cloud and I had all sorts of problems trying to get off the road and park and snap the photo with trees in the way.I carry a camera where ever I go, one never knows when something interesting might pop up like a roadtrain or something.THanks again for sharing your photo with me tonight.Kind REgards,David in the south of Western Australia

And hello again to you, too, David. Thanks for your visits and great comments. I've taken to trying to keep my camera with me pretty much all the time, but as you've noticed, sometimes getting set up becomes the problem. Take care!

Why didn't we think of this before: Rainbowling!

not1word on July 25, 2009

Hello, Malcom. Thanks a lot!

Guy, this is why you are you. I went ahead and added it to the title.

someGuyinmasset on July 26, 2009

Lol n1w, I wondered if that might happen. One of my idols is the great Gary Larson, so many of his cartoons were in the 'why didn't I think of that?' category.

not1word on July 26, 2009

I can only agree with you. Larson's view of the world is both instructive and enjoyable. I like Bizarro, too. It can be a bit of an acquired taste, but he comes up with some oddly humorous things.

Another great rainbow shot. Right place, right time. Good for you!
