After I found out that I couldn’t land on that small beach south of Cox Point,I returned & saw this perspective of Cox Point. One does not want to go near this place at any time of the year!
This was shot looking to the SE from my position. Cox Point had this rain storm just south of it and the last rays of the sunset lite it up,plus the moon came out!
Thats a win,win!
I went out to the far side of Frank Island tonight.
A rain storm passed over from the west and proceeded to the east behind me. When it did this,from my vantage point the sunlight was able to hit these rain drops and split the light up into it’s individual wavelengths and thus a rainbow!
The gulls on the left hand side had a great view as well.
It’s hard to see,but a second rainbow is just starting to form to the right of the main one. The second rainbow will have it’s colours reversed.
The rain drops must to be half the normal size, to get a second rainbow!
This is Cox Point and is directly south of Frank island. Some large rollers were coming in,while the point behind was getting hit.
This shot shows Cox Point in the foreground and Cox Beach to the right of it. You get a feeling for the width of the peninsula ! Not much.
