Rainbow Games…

by on Mar.28, 2013, under Life, Photography

During the Sydney Bronte to Bondi Photowalk sponsored by Samsung and Google Australia, Hosted by Colby Brown and Michael Sutton we had a quality rainbow manifest off the coast whilst we were on the Bondi headland where Sculptures by the Sea lives. I changed lenses from my new Sigma 35/1.4 to the Sigma 85/1.4 and added the CPL to help bring out the rainbow.

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

A newly married couple was on the headland to get some shots done by their photographer (not realising they’d be snapped by hundreds of photowalkers :)). When they got around to the tip of the headland for some more shots I figured I’d use them and the rainbow to good effect (their photographer wasn’t using the rainbow so I figured I would) – I’m really happy how this one turned out (and yes I know I ended up cutting things very very fine with the feet – I would have preferred a touch more breathing room but ce la vie…)
