Crisfield, Maryland Skywatch

Sunset at Jenkins Creek

"Never go out of the house with a wide angle lens just before dusk." ~ I said that.

Last week, I grabbed my Nikon 700 with a 17-35 wide-angle lens, and jumped on my scooter just to get away from the computer. I was not in the market for a photo, but just in case...photographers are so afraid they will miss something if they leave the house without a camera.

By the time I made two passes around town, the light started to worry me. "Oh, no. I can't shoot what I think I am going to see with my wide-angle lens. Should I run back home?" No. Light moves fast. So I did the best I could.

You gotta be kidding me. Great light AND a rainbow? Well, I have not had time to play with my filters in a long time, so enjoy this filtered rainbow. That's a real double rainbow.

Won't you bring your camera to Crisfield? We are so photogenic.

The wide angle was exactly the right lens. Never go out of the house WITHOUT a wide angle lens.

I said that.

Wide is the right lens for these shots! Beautiful sunset! I bet the power company guys don't like to get the call from that crab shanty when the power goes off. And I like your filtering of the rainbow.
