Under the Rainbow

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 3 November 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

From the Northern Edge of Lake Sammamish, not far from my house, I "lucked out" Thursday evening while walking against wind and light rain and I witnessed these two beautiful rainbows just developing.
This shot is looking towards the South Southeast. The sunset which was just about to happen behind me was obscured by thick clouds.
I was really excited when I came out of the woods on the walkway and saw what was developing. I hope you enjoy ;-)

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
