Sky Watch Friday #3

I am still learning how to use my new Sigma 15mm F2.8 Fish-Eye lens. This rainbow gives me a good idea of the possibilities. Although perhaps it isn’t really suitable for a 470 pixel-width blog format.

The sky has turned out greyer and much more bland than I had hoped.

With winter coming on I can hope for more rainbows, better rainbows.

So, for a little bit of dramatic interest, here is another of those tropical, desert sunsets across Lake Dora.

Skywatch Friday is hosted by Tom Wigley. Drop in and have a look at some other Sky Watches.

  1. The rainbow looks cool. What exactly does a fish eye lens do?

    It gives an extremely wide field of vision – so wide that anything away from the horizontal centre is distorted – It also gives a chance to do some extreme close-ups.

  2. Pretty pictures, excellent. Congratulations
