Great photographers are ready for the moment. You did well here.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Valley Stream Long Island while at a cookout. There was this empty bench getting wet in mid afternoon it began to rain , Just as fast as it started raining it stopped and the sun came out , when suddenly I look up and see this gorgeous "Rainbow" and I couldn't resist in shooting a picture of it. I took two different photos and this is just one of the two., I am aware the other photo is posted on my viewbug account.
Time
This photo was taken in late afternoon after a down pour of rain..in the summer.
Lighting
I just took the photo as soon as the rain stopped and I suddenly saw the rainbows in two different directions.. The backyard I was in has many trees and I was as quick to shoot
Equipment
Back in the day that I shot this photo I used an Olympus E40 ,I didn't use a flash ,I used a tripod for a steady hand and quick photo
Inspiration
I had never seen a rainbow anywhere in all the years I've been taking pictures.. I was so mesmerized that I jumped out of my chair and shot the quickest photo that I could.
Editing
No, I don't ..
In my camera bag
Since this photo was taken I now have a Cannon Rebel EOS DSL T5 , I have my standard 55mm lens, I also have a 75-300 zoom lens, The camera has a built in flash , I have a tripod and I also choose to work with Glass Photo Balls to get a beautiful effect of flowers, sunset, beach
Feedback
Be quick , Inhale the beauty of the scenic view however be quick and don't let such a beautiful subject get away before shooting your photo
