The Perfect Rainbow

On Sunday, Jan 15, 2017, as the rain passed, this perfect #rainbow formed over Austin. It appeared suddenly and faded over the next 10 minutes, as the sun set. You can also see the edges of a faint second rainbow in the corners. Second shot below has a close up of the #doublerainbow. The shots at the bottom are from my DJI Phantom 3 Pro, as the rainbow broke apart.

It was an amazing sight to behold and I’m very excited to share it with you. Have a great weekend. Be sure to follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for regular photos. Plus you can see my full portfolio at http://photos.overaustin.com/

Below is one of the first, early shots, from 3rd floor of a parking garage and a below that, a close up of the double rainbow section.

The Perfect Rainbow

CVS_0176I was actually downtown when the storm moved in, coming south to north. I saw it coming as the sun was setting. So I drove southwest to a parking garage with the hopes of perhaps getting a small rainbow over downtown Austin. I was extremely surprised to see an entire rainbow appear. After a few shots on the third floor the rain died down and I moved up to the top floor of the garage to get this one below. By then it was already fading.CVS_0228-cware

And below, as it faded, I got the drone in the air (Phantom 3 Pro) for a couple panorama shots, complete with raindrop on the lens in the first photo.
