An off day amble... After a frustrating morning of waiting on plumbers at the apartment, I headed out in the later afternoon ...no particular place to go but that's normal for me. Golden Gate Park is a good first option so I set my sites on the Alvord Lake Bridge and points beyond, remembering as I entered the park that it was Outside Lands weekend and maybe GG Park was not such a good idea. Made my way toward the Arguello gate. After a pleasantr conversation on the Oak Woodlands Trail, I headed to the Presidio and ultimately the Crissy Field Marsh. Had the Macro Lens on the Camera (a personal favorite)... Here's the thing... No matter what lens I mount, I always end up wishing I had chosen a different one. Today was no exception. In this case, I glanced up and saw this:
A Sunbow! To be tediously accurate, "cloud iridescence." No matter what you call it, It's really cool to see and relatiuvely uncommon. Nor surprisingly, I could not get the a wide enough shot to fully capture what I was seeing. No problem. I still have my trusty Smart phone camera. Whipped it out and captured this:
Not bad, eh? I'd love to tell you I planned to get that bird in the shot but the truth is, 'twas nothing but dumb luck.
