All week I’d planned to photograph the Perseid meteor shower, but both nights I went out to shoot, clouds occluded any chance of a starry sky. I'd photographed a Plan B yesterday afternoon, but wasn't really happy with the ho-hum topic.
I was sitting on my porch, stewing about what I would use for my blog, when serendipity struck. It had started to rain, but I could still see the sun shining strongly through the woods. Weird, but then I thought: RAINBOWS! I grabbed my gear and from my driveway, I could see part of one had formed right above me.
I headed to my neighborhood beach, and was lucky to see more of the rainbow seeming to rise right out of the Bay.
As I traveled along Woolsey Lake Road, remnants of the rainbow remained above the treeline. I could also see a brilliant sun peeking through the woods to the west. A sunset too? By the time I reached the Bight, the rainbow was too faint to photograph so I continued on to Peterson Park.
When I reached the park, the clouds and fog were rolling in, but there was a sunset. And that’s how the Perseids turned into a sunset.
