Friday 2.


Had to reopen today's blog entry to record that at about 7 p.m. we had a thunderstorm, followed by a very lovely rainbow. The above photo does not do it justice. It was a bright and complete double rainbow. What setting should I put my camera on to get better results with rainbows?  Suggestions welcome please.

Should also record that we played two four handed games of scrabble after supper, and that Andy won (very convincingly) the second game.

Good night, everyone.

Hi Mike,
most sky, cloud & light effect shots may be improved by the application of a coloured filter over the lens. The colours are specially developed to enhance the contrast and brightness of tones and hues. Go to the supplier of your camera and ask his advice, he should be able to supply one or two or more filters developed by the manufacturer to slip easily onto your camera and enhance these types of pictures. Also use maximum zoom when taking pics of skyscapes where a bird, plane or small area of sky is the principal subject. Otherwise Google your camera model and search for accessories/filters.

Thank you Crowbard. That should be helpful.

You are far too good at scrabble.
But I enjoy our games.

Mike and Ann said...

Thank you Pat. so do I.

There used to be a couple of people in our old camera shop called Tone and Hugh. I don't think they were enhanced.

Mike and Ann said...

They don't sound altogether natural, either, though, Rog.

Mike and Ann...
just caught up. I so envy the architecture over there.

Hello Lori. Good to hear from you. You have a good point! We're spoiled for lovely Tudor, pre-Tudor, and medieval buildings in this area. You have a standing invitation to come and have a look at them whenever you can spare us a few days.
Warm regards, Mike and Ann.
