Needless to say, I haven’t got a clue what’s the best way to shoot a rainbow. Unfortunately I was running late so I only had a few minutes to spare this rainbow’ish morning so I clicked a few horisontals and a few vertificals with the Nikkor 18-200mm lens which was on the camera and I left.
Any ideas how to make my next rainbow shot better? Leave a comment below!
Here’s another version, more wideangle:

Those are excellent!

Neither do I and neither does most anyone!
I suspect the “best” way is using some filter on the front of the lens, but I don’t know which one.
I’m guessing a polarizer might make the colors more vivid, especially the sky, if you’re standing at a 90 degree angle to the sun. But I don’t know much about filters so perhaps there’s another filter more suited for the task.
You’ve got a nice cam there dude. I just pre-ordered this same camera online and I’m so excited !! this should be like the best camera ever – rich camera incorporates a 16.2Mp. 😀
I love the D7000… I hope you ordered through the Amazon link above 😉
Good shot you’ve captured there Klaus! I’m a hopeless photographer and wishes i could do something like this, but I don’t think so because of work. And, D7000 is my dream cam, hope to get one in the near future. 🙂
That is some beautiful photography – really well taken 🙂
These are great shots Klaus. I recently got my 18-200mm, but mine is Canon. I’m really having fun with photography even if I can only play with it on weekends (I have a day job). I’ve already done moon shots and water drop shots. I’m hoping I’ll catch a rainbow shot next.
I think they turned out beautifully. I saw a rainbow yesterday too, but it was a bit different. We had a rainbow formed from the snow clouds moving into our area.
It’s amaizing… For me a rainbow is a symbol of hope, may be because it appears usually after the rain ) Not long ago i saw double rainbow!
lovely shots! i think they turned out really well.
Looks like the rainbow is coming out of that big white house (on boh snaps actually) – very eeery
Good pics! I also have pictured rainbows in my cam! It’s just amazing to see nature’s wonders so beautiful and awesome..
Thats really is a beautiful photograph…I don’t think any tips can make it still beautiful!
Great shot. How beautiful it must have been.
awesome photographs..really like all of them…………nice clicks. I really like rainbows…….and this is really amazing
lovely shots, much nicer if malta is much clearer. but excellent.
