"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Somewhere Under a Rainbow

The neighborhood is Shadyside.

Almost to Walnut Street along Shady Avenue, I had to stop and pull over.

A summer cloudburst, along with the sun appearing in the western sky- rainbow!

I’m sure the image could be tweaked a bit to darken the colors, but this is just as it was. The building is Calvary Church Parish Hall on the left, the church on the right.  The 50mm 1.2 L lens  was on the camera.

  1. Conditions ripe for a rainbow. Rain clouds fill half the sky and the sun streaming into them. Love how you captured the shadows of the trees on the buildings’ facades, too.
