Rainbows & Sunsets…

I went down to a friend’s cabin this weekend for a day… We were looking forward to basking in the sun as we darted around the lake on their family boat, spraying children on the shore with our wake, chucking empty beer bottles at elderly folks, and leaving uncut 6-pack plastic rings in the water for fish and seals and birds to get their necks caught in… you know, what everybody does during Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately, as soon as I arrived with my friends Andrew and Carrie, the sun went into hiding, and the clouds came out with it’s angry face. It rained for the majority of the afternoon, which sucked, but it stopped raining just in time for dinner. We were able to catch some double rainbows, and the angry clouds made for some dynamic sunset photos as we got on the boat for an evening cruise.

These were taken with the E-1 and 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 lens. Not bad for a camera that’s 6 years old… I also had my E-620 with me, but I opted for the E-1 due to it’s weather sealing… just in case the clouds decided to unzip it’s pants and unload on us again. Fortunately, it didn’t, and I ended up with these two photos… (the second shot was taken holding the camera just above the water… getting it ever so slightly wet.)

  1. Awesome shot Justin. I am a bit of a bitch when it comes to sunsets, and it’s rare to see the full magnitude of one captured so well on film (or that little plastic card that substitutes for film these days).
