Hello friends in TL,

The first break of sun after a few days of rain in the evening strike me in the mood for some photoshoot after work. The three of us (me, Sharina and the little one) got in the car for a short drive. After 10 minutes, Sharina spotted the rainbow and pointed it to my son in the backseat. I found a good spot to pull over but the cable poles are on the way. With my tripod and CPL ready, I managed a rather good saturation of this rainbow after a few shots. The car hit a big bump on the dirt road and amazing enough, the light on my dash with green D letter is back to work. Miracles do happen and have a wonderful week ahead.

Thanks for viewing.

Hi Jusni; this is lovely. The rich colors of the landscape with the light coming through the clouds are quite beautiful... and you managed to see two rainbows - not just one! Great job.

Hello Jusni.
So you found the Pot with Gold at your dashboard ? haha
Are you sure, Sharina did not pointed the right switch to you ?
You better take them more often for a ride.!
Nice picture in your surrounding and the Rainbow is a pleasant bonus.
Best regards to all of you.

Hi, Jusni!

Wonderful shot with fantastic colours and light. Superb!


Great light and good saturation here too Jusni, some very nice work presented. Maybe the rainbow didn't have to be so centred in the shot, but the horizon is well placed and the lead-in line of the rice field from lower left works well here.

Hi Jusni,
Splendid landscape shot in all around. It is nice to see double rainbow:) Great.
TFS and cheers,

Hi Jusni,
Very nice scene, well captured--the green and yellow field, the biker, the rainbow, the palm-trees, the power poles. Excellent compo and POV.
P.S. Nothing against the power poles--I think they are OK and a good element for the landscape.

Beautiful shot, I like the visible double rainbow and the motor-knight riding below it. Have a happy week too!

Hello Jusni,
Rich colours of the landscape , great light in the clouds
and a super rainbow.
The diagonal of the road works well.
Well taken .
TFS, Joni

Assalamualaikum Jusni,

hi Jusni

Rainbow color is always a catch for photographers if we ever have the camera ready at hand and you have such good chance to capture the color stripes across the cloudy sky nicely here. This is easily seen when you are on flat land like the rice field here, even though I still see the power cables.

I like the biker at the base of the colors.

tfs, bill
