#290 Over the Rainbow

Is there really any gold at the end of a rainbow? Beats me. That's not why we stopped to take this picture.

We were driving home from a shoot, taking a circuitous backroad through Tarlac, when we spotted an unusual sight: a prominent rainbow cast within an ominously dark sky laden with rain. It was an interesting lighting situation, but even that only made a great backdrop. We still needed a focal point. Then a farmer and his beast appeared from a nearby paddy. Serendipity. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: When the sky above is mostly dark and the landscape is lit by a bright horizon behind you, slightly underexpose your shot by metering on the brightest portion of your composition. It's a tricky lighting situation that fools most in-camera meters.)

For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (, one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas.  No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
