I try to get out and photograph as much as possible but as we all know weather is a huge factor in where and when I do get to photograph. And as you know the weather can change at a moments notice and in this image things changed at a crazy speed that I almost didn’t catch.
For the last month we have experienced an over abundance of rain and that has really hampered my time out. So a couple nights ago once again we had rain all day that led into the evening. I arrived home walked out into the yard with my dog and after observing how dark and flat the light was and with rain still lightly falling I decided to ditch another evening and went inside to catch up on post processing.
Sitting at my computer I noticed a change in the light streaming from the crack in the blinds of the window. I happened to be on facebook at the time, when my feed came alive from posts about the incredible rainbow we were experiencing at that moment. I quickly grabbed my camera bag and ran out of the house to find the slowly fading rainbow in the sky and my heart dropped, as I did get a few good shots, but didn’t make out in time to get the rainbow when it was displaying at it’s fullest display.
But once again time came into effect I figured since I was already out I would wait a bit and see how the sunset turned out. I think I made the right call on this one I eventually captured another great sunset over Madison Indiana from one of my favorite spots.
I guess if there is a moral to the story it would be that things in nature can change very quickly, from the time I got home to dark cloud covered day it went to a amazing rainbow and then to this wonderful sunset a little more than a hour had passed. So don’t give up too soon when you go out and be patient with the changing conditions it can and does get better out there !!
