Got this double rainbow over San Francisco Bay Bridge at sunset last night. It was an unbelievable thrill even though everything went wrong! When I got there, it was pouring rain, dark and gloomy. The high winds kept getting rain on my damn lens, which I had to keep wiping off. This made for some horrible streaking in many images. I didn't have a heavy tripod either, so again the high winds didn't help camera shake. I had not cleaned my sensor in many months, so at f/22, every single dust bunny showed, hundreds and hundreds of them. I had no time to or materials to clean it so I just kept shooting. Then out of nowhere, the clouds parted for 3 to 4 minutes, sunlight shot through and right onto the bridge, hitting a sheet of rain that happened to be passing over at that moment. Totally lucky! So after cloning out about a thousand tiny little black dust dots and streaks, this was what I was able to salvage. I hope you like it!

  1. Weird perspective here…….. I guess there are some distortion issue to deal with.
