With photography you just need to be lucky sometimes. There are many photos you can plan ahead like a sunset over the country side, a shot of the milky-way or whatever ... But some stuff just happens very rarely and cannot be planned upfront. My father calls these events the 'little gifts' in life. Last summer I received one of these little gifts during our travels in Italy. All day the weather had been horrible and then suddenly the sky opened up and this rainbow unfolded right in front of the medieval town of Trevi in Umbria Italy. I immediately pulled the car over and took a couple of shots. Some minutes later the rainbow was gone. Rainbow in front of Trevi (Italy) - Pentax-A 100mm F2.8
On January 21st 2019 it was possible to witness a full lunar eclipse in my hometown - also known as a blood moon. Look at the picture and you understand why. I got up very early on a freezing winter morning and checked out the conditions: clear sky, moon visible ... so unfortunately I could not find any excuse to return to bed.
