Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken during my first drive down Crater Rim Rd. in Hawaii.
Time
It was our first day in Hawaii,we arrived late the night before. I was up early and dying to get some photos! I left my family sleeping and drove down Crater Rim Rd. near the Kilauea Volcano, in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This is the most beautiful road ever. I left about 7am. It takes about 40 minutes to drive the whole road,ending at the ocean. This picture was taken on the way back up, so maybe about 8-8:30 in the morning, I caught the rainbow.
Lighting
It was early morning so the lighting was perfect!
Equipment
I used my canon t3...lens was 16-35mm and I was wishing I had brought my tripod.
Inspiration
A full rainbow is what inspired me. I had never seen a full rainbow,let alone catch it on a photo.
Editing
I could have done a better job processing,but I usually adjust clarity, luminance,contrast and highlights to start with. I did add vibrance to make the rainbow stand out better.
In my camera bag
I really want a Mark III 5D, but for now I use my canon t3...canon 16-35mm lens....canon 18-55mm lens...canon 100mm macro lens, tripod, remote switch and of course batteries and cards.
Feedback
This road has a diverse landscape and climate. The top is chilly and rainy, by the end of the road, you are at the beach where it is sunny and windy. Just be prepared for anything, be patient. If you ever are in Hawaii definitely travel this road, you will not be disappointed. Because of the climate on this road,I am positive that catching a rainbow here is almost a daily event.
