One great shot of a rainbow erases the frustration of many hours of rain. Here’s how to get the most of your golden opportunity:

  • A polarizer filter can enhance a rainbow’s intensity. Give the filter a turn until the colors are most vivid.
  • Rainbows are always directly opposite the sun, so turn your back to the sun and face the darkest section of the sky.
