A Rainbow Outside My Motel Window

Although I’ve seen many rainbows, I’ve only been able to photograph a few  of them and most of those images did not turn out that well.

This is one of the better rainbows I’ve managed to capture even with a cluttered foreground.

The story begins in a motel room in East Tawas, Michigan. I was pretty tired and got into bed early.

Outside a rain shower moved through, but I scarcely noticed it. But then I became aware that the light outside seemed to get brighter.

I pulled back the curtains and spotted this rainbow. I jumped out of bed, grabbed my camera and made a few images.

A better background would be Tawas Bay a few blocks down the street. I threw on some clothes and drove down there, but by the time I reached park, the rainbow was nearly gone.

So this would have to do as far as my best image of this particular rainbow.
