Rainbows are a rare phenomenon in my part of the world and we get excited whenever we are lucky to visualize a rainbow.
This was an unexpected pleasant treat!

  1. I’ve always wanted to see the northern lights Philo – how wonderful that you had such an experience. They occur only in places that are very difficult for travelers and then one never knows if they will happen so it really is a gift ! Your image is truly beautiful! We do see many rainbows here but we never tire of them and always see them as something special. Lovely choices for the challenge.

    1. Thank you my friend.
      The one I experienced was mostly in grades of green.
      As far as the Rainbow colors in Aurora,my guess is apart from green yellow orange,you may see pink too.
      Regarding looking for all the 7 colors of rainbow here…I doubt.
      Also adjusting the colour saturation in LR or PS may bring out more colors.But mine was mostly green-yellow combination.


    1. Thank you Amy.
      Getting to see the Northern Lights is the most toughest part and it truly tests your endurance.
      Luck plays a major role.
      Camera sees much more than our eyes and post processing and adjusting colour saturation brings out better appearance and different colours, which otherwise we miss with our naked eyes.


  2. You are so lucky! I have tried for Many, many years to see them…but no. I have been to Iceland several times, to Lapland several times . but no. It has to be clear and you have to go out of cities and inhabited areas. The closest I have been is on Greenland in the 1980’s, when they said the light would come early in the morning – and I overslept… but next time…I will go with guide on Iceland! If there is a next time these days…
    yours is Fantastic! Well chosen!

    1. Yes Leya.
      Luck plays a major role.
      Most of the times the cloudy weather spoils the show.
      I wish and pray that you get an opportunity this time and you are sure to visit Iceland.
      Better you take the help of local guides.
      You don’t believe if I say some of these guides are professional photographers by themselves and help you with proper gear and settings.
      Thank you so much.

  3. Your northern lights are intense, Philo! I love the rainbow also. We always wanted to see the northern lights! My sister and brother-in-law went to Canada to see them. I also checked into going to Norway to see them.
