Chasing Rainbows and Finally Capturing One

A few years ago there was a giant double rainbow in Hadley, MA. Unfortunately I did not have my camera on me and missed the opportunity to capture it. About two years ago a rainbow appeared while I was in the car on the way to the mall. This is all I could capture of it. I was not driving.

A year ago my mom and dad went to Hadley and there was another beautiful rainbow that she captured.

Even a few months back there was one that I chased but could not capture it in full. My sister took this picture of it.

My friend Nickole even captured one and sent me this picture.

So, I have felt like I have always been chasing rainbows in hopes to capture a full one on camera, that is, until a few days ago:) My buddy Bill had asked me if I wanted to go see Jurassic Park 3D. I was currently working on the Back to the Future Scene Recreation in Photoshop but needed a break. I told him to pick me up at 6:30 as the movie started at 7:30 in Hadley, MA. I came outside and noticed the sun was out but it was raining. I said to Bill, maybe we’ll see a rainbow. Not five minutes into the drive I look to my right and notice a full blown rainbow. I tell him to take a right at the lights and I’m back to chasing rainbows. We stopped at Mosier School in South Hadley, MA so I could capture this amazing image of this unbelievable rainbow.

Then captured the same rainbow at Mount Holyoke College.

After all these years of being a photographer, I have finally captured my first full rainbow.

I will still be chasing rainbows but now it’s to add to the one I finally captured.
