Spectacular shot! Lucky you.

WOW! Is that real?

This picture creates feeling - I don't know enough about photography (I am a novice) to say anything technical - I just know what reaches inside, and this does! Powerful art.
mdchachi (1617) 2003-10-30 19:37
Wow, what a dramatic shot. Nice use of the road to lead our eyes into the shot.
dopiro (835) 2003-10-30 19:47
This shot is completely surreal!
I`d love to see a 16 bits full rez copy! With the number of cameras out there and the means to distribute the images, were have to get ready to see some pretty funky stuff ...
This is a perfect example! Maybe you`ll catch a UFO next Lyn!! :-)

Très spectaculaire! De toute beauté.
martin (1242) 2003-10-30 22:40
A stunning image. The lighting on the fence and road balances the rainbows.

great shot, the dark sky with two rainbows looks really great, and landscape is very sharp, excellent!

Looks like miracle!! Hope you got there after or in time before the sky bursts open! Amazing sight! And of course very well captured! Colors are fantastic, I like the raod in the middle, although maybe I would have taken this photo vertical.

Amazing vividness in your unique capture Lyn...one really feels the ominous passing of the dense black thunderclouds and the sun breaking through a clearing.Are those ruts in the road to lend credibility that the heavy rains left soft mud?:-)
And welcome to TE Lyn.

Faaaantatstic. There are no other words. We have double rainbows, but nevver such skys.
dannyc7 (358) 2003-10-31 14:28
spectacular, unreal yet beautiful photo
ninadev (5377) 2003-10-31 16:24
Out of this world. I'm jealous. The double rainbow is so spectacular, never seen such thing. It's funny how the colors of these rainbows are inverted. But what amazes me even more is this golden light on the field with this nice road leading right into the storm.
CoolDan (2516) 2003-11-03 18:08
What a fantastic photo.
Superbes couleurs. J'aime cette petite route qui se perd à l'horizon. J'en ai le souffle coupé.

I watch this pic the third time. I do not have words. I never seen something of similar. Something like this you can see just one time in the life. Seems like from the other planet.

Very dramatic. One seldom sees the second rainbow this sharp, but obviously you hade perfect conditions with the rainstorm in front and the sun from the back. The colors are wonderful, looking at the landscape in front you might as well had a blue sky.
nmess (2301) 2003-11-08 12:44
Talk about WOW factor, this is it! The double rainbow against the dark threatening sky and brightly lit foreground is huge! I can only hope to aspire to capturing an image of this quality.
Jeppe (18654) 2003-11-09 7:55
I have seen a simular rainbow, but unfortunatly was I driving on a highway whitout a chance to shot it - Great shot, I like it.
aferrao (1145) 2003-11-14 11:53
First of all it was a great lucky for you to be in front of such a Nature gift!
But you've captured the moment in a way that we almost can fell we are there!
amitai (879) 2004-02-22 6:27
Wonderful, just looks a little too pixelated. I am sure the original film is just great.
zto (292) 2004-03-14 16:21
This is just gorgeous. What else can i say. It woul dhave been beautifull with only the one rainbow. With two it is amazing.
vascao (192) 2004-05-06 22:39
Really amazing, both the double rainbow and the dark sky as well. A unique shot, indeed.
marctay (66) 2004-05-25 10:58
I always wonder where the rainbow starts and where it ends. This picture solves my puzzle and thus it deserve points (^_^). This was added to my fav list too.
Lyn, thanks so much for sharing this.
yweinreich (165) 2004-07-20 20:41
Wow - what drama.. and black sky - and lit fields - what an amazing foto
rdans59 (263) 2004-07-27 3:51
Never seen such a wonderful and threatening sight at the same time. Wonderful image.
lucinka (9976) 2004-11-13 4:30
This is another excellent catch of very strong picture with rainbow. This kind of picture is simply "to be at the right moment at the right place with camera" you cannot just go somewhere and wait for it to happen. Very well done! L.
donluicu (24718) 2005-04-14 21:42
It's always a nice catch. Being there and shoot, wow.the colors are amazing, and the construction of the pic is great. I like the little road...
msirois (275) 2005-05-02 13:31
Spectacular shot. Amazing the surprises nature throws at us sometimes, isn't it? Well captured.
partha (14020) 2006-02-26 7:19
A rare gem, U r very lucky to capture such a dramatic natural wonder.
srpablillo (225) 2006-04-21 7:13
Great spectacularal sky. No post processing? Nice colours
andeweg (139) 2006-04-21 7:43
This is very impressive!
kinginexile (2598) 2006-07-15 13:31
Very unique and striking, yu had to be happy to be there. A detail, you could have included a bit more road foreground, and slightly push the darkness of the sky at processing time.
Well, OK, not a digital pix!
Keep that negative in a safe place!
cenkie (91) 2006-11-21 6:34
Spectecular shot. The brigtness of the landscape in front of the rainbow on the right and in contrast the haze and the darkness at the back stage is very impressive.
uccia84 (720) 2006-12-18 8:15
favoloso...la luce sembra oro!

Beautiful image of the the two rainbows. Although it is a rather frightening sky.
