Rainbow over Rock Lake, Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

OK, here’s a landscape again. This one from a few days on the north side of the park, at Rock Lake. I had been cruising around looking for waterfowl, with little luck on this particular day, and headed over to Rock Lake because (a) I had seen ducks on it the day before, and (b) it’s a nice place to spend the night. There’s a little camping area just near the lake, and with a great view of Mt Sanford in the background (when it’s clear) it’s a sweet little spot.

I was actually in the midst of cooking some dinner when I turned around and saw this rainbow. At first I thought, ‘oh no, it’s just another rainbow’, and paid it no mind. But it became more and more intense. The colors were about as vibrant as any rainbow I’ve ever seen. So I grabbed my gear and ran around to the end of the lake to take some images. I didn’t have my ultra-wide angle lens with me, because it’s still getting repaired, but made do with what I had. I ended up liking some of the tighter frames, like this one, but wish I had a real wide lens, because at times the entire half circle of the rainbow was clear. Maybe 10 minutes later, it was gone.

Cheers

Carl
