Rainbow in Lake Nakuru National Park, central Kenya, against a dark, stormy sky; June 1980.

On the right are Yellow-barked Acacias, known as “Fever Trees” due to formerly being thought the source of malaria.

Note the difference in brightness of the sky on either side of the rainbow, and also how the sequence of colours in the rainbow’s dim reflection is opposite to that in the rainbow itself.

OM-1 with 28mm Zuiko; Agfa CT18 colour slide rated at 64 ISO.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Must love a double, and the big sky helps a lot!
