Why a title like “You Had To Be There”? Because you really did. This image was taken at Schoodic Lake after a long day of drizzle and rain and just gray skies with no interest. That is until 6pm at sunset there appeared this rainbow (two actually), pink clouds and a beautiful sunlight on the shore to the left. I got the camera out and went into the rain and took about 3 shots before it disappeared as fast as it appeared! A beautiful sight to see. The image on your screen can’t possibly come close to what it looked like in real life. You had to be there!
One of the things I’ve learned when it comes to photography one has to be ready. You can’t be fiddling around with your camera and changing lenses or trying to find your tripod, etc. You’ve got to be ready to go especially when it comes to changes in weather.
Where’s the snow? This photograph above was taken a year ago in February 2015 one of our snowiest winters ever. Snow around ‘The Pink House’ must have been knee deep. Going there at sunrise was great to capture a different perspective on the often photographed building in Newburyport, MA.
This year 2016 El Nino is huge apparently so the weather patterns have changed all around the US. Here’s the ‘Pink House’ this year February 2016. Kind of looks like late spring to me! Oh well. Here’s hoping for some more snow…before it’s too late!
