This park can be frustrating for me. It's a nice park, but I find it difficult to find nice compositions there.
After some aimless wandering about, I took this photo of a sunset beyond a flooded tree. That pond usually isn't there although it often appears in springtime.
I waited until the sun was low enough that it didn't give me flares, and the cloud cover helped.
As for this morning, it was overcast enough that I ambled over to the neighbours garden to try to snap their Heather plant. But it was windy, and I didn't do well, so I deleted them all. Also, with a bad back and all, getting low is highly problematic. Sigh.
After coming back inside, it was around 6:20 when Sue saw a full rainbow from the bedroom window. What neither of us noticed at the time was that there was a faint double rainbow. I only saw that in the photo, believe it or not.
Since rainbows disappear quickly, I just poked my head out the back door and fired away rather than try to drive around and look for a better shot. But I did take the time to put on my wide angle lens (which is also what I used for the tree shot above). It's not every rainbow that is a complete arc with a double to boot.
|From the back door. Note the double which neither of us saw at the time.|
Then I shot from the upstairs window. By this time it was raining, so I picked up the drops on the window. I didn't open the window because if the way that it opens, I would have been obstructed.
I was pleased to get the shot as well as I did after the disappointment with the earlier flower shots.
