Rainbow Over the French Quarter

Rainbow Over the French Quarter

On a recent photowalk through the French Quarter on an overcast afternoon I was greeted with this view. A long, sweeping rainbow arching across the sky and disappearing on one side behind the tall building of the downtown area and on the other behind the shorter, older buildings of the French Quarter.

It’s not very easy on foot to bet around a rainbow for a better angle and knowing how fleeting their presence is I took my best shot from where I was. Rainbows are not easy to photograph against such a gray sky and with no polarizing filter but I managed to grab this shot. The birds flying in out of the right side of the picture is an added bonus.
