    Buy a raincoat or power company shares?

    Looked out the window to see the most vivid rainbow I have seen in a long time. Unfortunately it was not in a great position from a pictorial point of view.
    Took a few shots and then noticed from one vantage point it ended at a power pole.

    A large power company has just gone public so is it a sign I should buy some shares, dig or buy a raincoat?

    That really is a vivid rainbow. You did a masterful job of controlling the impulse that most of us would have to overdo the saturation; the rainbow looks vivid but not at all unnatural.

    It is a new camera and I am still sorting out the default adjustments that I get lightroom to apply to the RAW file. For these I just used the standard setting that I had determined after experimenting with it yesterday. The result is reasonably true to life as you can judge by the foliage.

    Uploaded partly because I am still trying to determine what sharpening I should be applying and I wanted to view after a lightroom export and tinypic have had a go at the file.

    That really is a vivid rainbow. If you believe in signs, go with the power co. stock. If you're success investing is anything like mine a rainbow is likely as good a predictor as balance sheets

    Dan thank you for your investment advice but first I need the lotto ticket that I have just invested in to provide me with the appropriate funds.
