Double Rainbow, West Sussex

Rainbow in the Park, West Sussex – June 2020

People tend to think of landscape photography as a fairly leisurely persuit, but in my experience it is anything but. I took these two pictures within a few minutes of each other – and then the light went!

Two Shadows, West Sussex – June 2020

If you are curious, I took these on my phone, which I bring on my daily walk. Moments after I took the rainbow picture it rained quite heavily, which made me glad that my phone is water resistant. To my eye, these photos are quite close to how it looked, the Sun was very low in the sky, casting long, dark shadows.

Double Rainbow, Batheaston 2017

I took this picture one afternoon as I walked home from Bath (a city in the UK). It was mid-afternoon. A challenge with a panoramic, is that at least half of the pleasure is in the scale of thing – and here it is just a little rectangle on colour.

I like the “slice of colour” – if I had been using a proper camera, I would be able to zoom in and see lots of detail (I really enjoy that – particularly fabrics), but it is from an iPhone – so you get what you get.
