Run About

Run About

This is a shot from about a year ago on a weekend away in Dunsborough. I went out onto the beach at Eagle bay to have a little wander around when suddenly this rainbow appeared. Ofcoarse my camera was still in the car about 300 metres away so I did the dash back to the car. The soft sand and rain didn’t help my running efforts at all. I managed to run, get the camera, and set up quickly for this shot just as the rainbow was disappearing. I was knackered! Although I missed out on the rainbow in all its glory as it stretched across the whole bay, I am pleased that the run was reasonably worth while.

    What’s the story with WordPress killing the image quality?
    In say Redbubble for instance this shot and others look how they should look, whereas in WordPress the quality is far inferior. I am sure this has already been touched on but is there any way around it?

    Hi Luke,
    Love this shot. Looks incredibly peaceful. Maybe the calm before the storm.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Technically the horizon isn’t level, I checked it. When I processed it I didn’t notice it though. I will just leave it be.

    Thanks a lot Peter. Hopefully I will get to the show at some point as I wouldn’t mind checking out the exhibition.
