Last weekend, i visited Bryant Lake in Minneapolis to check how the fall colors looked like around the lake. Being a cloudy day with hardly any sun throughout the day, my plan was to just check the status of fall colors, and return on a brighter day with my camera to capture the evening light. Colors seemed to be close to peak, though in next few days, it might get better, i thought so. I was almost done with my survey of the lake area.
Just then, to my amazement, sun came out from behind the clouds and the whole landscape changed dramatically with few seconds. I decided to stay on. I took out my camera and began to shoot the scenery, shining with the sunlight and draped in the light of golden hour, considered to be one of the best times for photography. There was some drizzle as well. I was about to return when i turned my back and saw the formation of a small rainbow from amidst the dark cloud. I went back to the fishing pier and took few shots of the evening with the rainbow.
This post was inspired by this week’s photo challenge: Shine.
