Featured in Colour and light 29 August 2010
It was raining in the morning. Wake at 5.30am and considering to be out taking picture or not, lying on the warm hotel bed at Philip Island. After 5 mins, I decided to load my gears and try my luck.
During the way to this Rocky Pinnacle, you need to climb a few rocks and pass through some waters. However, it’s not dangerous. I was thinking what will happen if the tide turns high as I will be left in the middle of the sea :). Fall a few times as the rocks were very slippery due to rains and waves.
When I reached this destination, the rain stopped, sun rising, and therefore, the rainbow!
Camera: Nikon D300s
Lens: 10-24mm wide angle
Focal length: 12mm
Filters used: 1 Polarizer and 1 ND8.
Treatment: This is an HDR using Ptotomatix Pro 2 with 5 images at 0.3 EV step size. The rainbow becomes obvious after HDR process as the camera capture it’s best at low exposure.
At first, I wish to see the pinky skies, but unfortunately, due to the delay, I could only get this orange skies :). Hope you like it.
