Ochoco Rainbow

June 21st, 2010

I was driving in this area during some off and on rainstorms and saw this rainbow right outside of Mitchell, Oregon.

Canon EOS 7D, Tamron 28-75mm f./2.8 XR Di, Adobe Lightroom 3.

Nice rainbow. On my monitor, I can see a very faint band of colour below the purple which technically shouldn't be there, as it would correspond to a wavelength our eyes couldn't see. Is it an artefact from post-processing, or is it from some in-camera noise caused by re-emission of ultra-violet light? If so, would a UV filter fix this?

And do the latitude/longitude coordinates point perhaps to the pot of gold?

@josephwm: the sensors on digital cameras do not have the exact same frequency response as the human eye.

That must have been amazing to see in person. Nice capture. Thanks for sharing it!

I suddenly crave Lucky Charms. Time for breakfast!

Excellent submission. As atosk89 said, it must have been absolutely incredible to see live.

Too much banding in the rainbow, and not the obvious kind.

Thanks for the comments.

I did not do much post processing other than just exporting it to jpeg from lightroom. I was kind of in a hurry when I took that, from the drivers seat of my car as there was no where to pull over right there. If there were a place to pull over I probably would have attached my 17-40L and set up my tripod, unfortunately I did not have an opportunity to do that right then.

Fairly amazing! I shot a picture of a rainbow, but was as magnificent as this. Great work.
