There is a WORKSHOP showing closer details, as
I have already spent my Kb. limit on Large Post photos :(

September, 21st. (2006), 20:23 time, we were resting in our house and begining to get dark when a strange light entered the room.
We went out to the balcony and this beautiful and strong rainbow surprised us. It is strange (at least here) to see such a powerful rainbow so late in the evening and with no rain.
The shots are taken with the 350D+kit lens handheld, I had to take 2 photos and then made a fusion to see all the arc.

Hope you like!

Hi Filipe

It's indeed a shame that you can't upload any more LP-s :((
This would have looks amazing , i'm sure!

Even so it's wonderful and it does have the impression of being extra-wide.
The colors and are most charming and clearly visible and the roofs of the houses are good to give the impression of the size.
Terrific stitch work, too.

Bravo and TFS

Parades Felipe. Technically perfect picture. Excellent composition. Just a perfect shot. tfs. Stev

Hola Felipe,

I want to wish you a 'Appy St. Patrick's Day. This photo also has "green" in it in the rainbow, although it is hard to find of course. I like the colour spectrum you have captured and that we see here. Tfs, Jay

Hola Felipe y Cristina,
He visto algún que otro arcoiris, pero ninguno con esa luz tan estraña y bella en el cielo. Claro que La Coruña no es Córdoba:-)
Una foto muy sugerente de este fenómeno tan mágico.
Abrazos, José M.

This rare full rainbow photo is a real treat. Great exposure that gives an unusual mood. Good stitch job. Very well done. Regards,

I have yet to see a better rainbow picture than this, Felipe.
That you stitched two shots together to make this fantastic picture speaks volumes about your technical expertise.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Really interesting shot, well presented.


Hi Fekipe and Christina,
WOW! that is an amazing rainbow. I would love to see that one in a fine detail large print. A very complete perfectly shaped rainbow. Nice shot.

This is a nice panoramic merged photo. The whole image is interesting with the great colors, light and complex skyline.

Dear Cristina and Felipe,
it is extremely rare to see the "Mach interband" in a picture of a rainbow (this is the slightly darker region between the first and the second rainbow). Not only you show it here, but even the trace of a third, larger rainbow in the workshop post!! You did an extremely good photographic job, really! Besides physics, it is simply an exeptional view. Thanks for showing it.

Hola Felipe,
Un precioso arco iris, me gusta lo bonito y completo que se ve, con la parte interna más iluminada. Muy bien ese formato más apaisado.
