I don't often post just regular snapshots. Most of my shots are pretty well planned and setup. Most have at least a little work done to them as far as brightness or contrast. Here's a couple of shots that break out of the norm. I left the house early last week due to an early breakfast meeting. Perfect day to head out early, I learned. There was rain coming in from the west, yet in the east was one of the most spectacular sunrises I had ever seen. In the early morning rush hour, it's not really possible to just pull over and setup and start shooting. So I drove a little and was able to pull into a parking area behind a building and due to having to be a meeting I just pulled out the camera and fired off some shots. O.k. I thought. I at least was able to shoot and we'll check 'em out later and hopefully I got something somewhat like what I saw. Then, as I pulled out from behind the building where I was shooting, I caught a look at an incredible rainbow. No rain had come yet, but, I guess, due to the sunrise and impending rain (maybe a mist in the air), so I was surprised to see it. Once again, I pulled out the camera and fired off some quick ones. You don't know how tempting it was to blow off my meeting and go chasing rainbows. But, I was good employee and headed off to work. Once again, wasn't real sure of what would show up (rainbows can be difficult to capture), but I hoped I would get something. Here's two of the shots I got with really no touchups, just some cropping.
