"Golden Gate and Rainbow"
Location: Crissy Field, San Francisco, California.

It does not rain much in California, but when it does it can sometimes create very unique lighting conditions. The early morning light on the bridge had wonderful contrast against the dense storm clouds behind the bridge. Adding to the drama the rain had started pouring and even created a rainbow. Soon afterwards the rain caught up to me but I was ready with my rain gear :)

Tech Info and Tip:
Lens: Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L @24mm
Camera: Canon 5D Mk II
Exposure: 1/15sec at f/8 and ISO 50
Filters: Circular polarizer

The circular polarizer helps darken the sky and bring out the contrast in the scene.
