27 Nov 17 A local shot for today, and one I took this morning. As we were driving to church Jan exclaimed "Look at that rainbow!" It was arching over a local farm house so I pulled off the road onto the neighbor's driveway and grabbed a shot in the rain. Then headed off to church. Before we had gone even another mile we got a better glimpse of it and pulled off the road again, this time into our local casino parking lot. Lo and behold, we saw the whole thing, end to end, one of which was in the middle of the casino building. Guess it was trying to tell us where to go to find that proverbial pot of gold, or at least a minimal chance of it. On top of that, we had a partial second arc on top of the full arc. Not being prepared for something like this, I had neither my tripod nor the correct lens to capture it. So I shot freehand at the shortest focal length I had resulting in the requirement for multiple frames and tilting the camera backward. The result was a composite that looked very much like it had been shot with a fish eye lens. I've corrected it as much as practical, removed a lot of stuff, and cloned in what was missing. The colors are accurate, sky, rainbow, and casino. By the time we had made it to church, 3 miles distant, it was almost gone and about 5 minutes after that it was totally gone. Ninety minutes later we were looking at rain so heavy it was as if we were looking through a waterfall. It all finally ended about 5 hours later.
This is a pano of three shots that I've heavily edited as noted above. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 250; 1/800 sec @ f / 5.6.
