SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

This was my first opportunity to capture a picture of a rainbow with my Nikon.  Standing on top of the mountain made it easy to see exactly where the rainbow touched down.  It was merely a matter of running to the other side of the ridge.

Unfortunately upon arrival I discovered that the elusive end of the rainbow had moved and the mythical pot of gold would remain beyond my grasp.

My camera has never been the same since my tumble on it late this summer.  Just the other day I discovered that my camera now had a very distinctive rattle to it.  My daughter Rocky had some news to share with me this morning:

'Hey mom, you know that shaking noise from your camera?  I have good news, it doesn't affect the pictures.  Its probably just something from your lense that broke bent when you fell and finally broke off!' 

Yeah, its just something that broke off of my lense, great news!  Thanks sweetie.  I feel better already!

Nice capture on the rainbow.
< grimace> on the Nikon :-( I saved my camera twice but screwed me up in the process.

That second image is really special!

I cringe and the thought of your fall.  I've fallen with mine twice, but I took the hit, not the camera.

Ummm, maybe you'd better put a new camera on your Christmas list??  This journal wouldn't be the same without your great pictures!

I love rainbows. You captured these perfectly, sorry about that mythical pot of gold. Does Rocky sell insurance? LOL! Just kidding.      ~Deborah

Great magical rainbow photos.   With all the wonderful photos you have taken, I would say that it was worth (because of the damage)whatever cost you have paid and more.   mark
