One Amazing Little Rainbow

Caught this rainbow dancing along the desert floor near Marble Canyon at Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. It played with the monsoonal clouds passing through to provide some abstract images. A time lapse video of this rainbow and surrounding storms will follow soon.  These images are available as prints or downloadable files for personal use at Dawn2dawnPhotography.com

The Bad, the Good, The Ugly at Zion Today

Tremendous monsoonal thunderstorms ravaged Zion National Park today, closing the main road thru the park due to rock slides. But as with any storm, the aftermath can be delightful.

Watch Rain Shower Appear and Disappear

Monsoonal moisture over the Grand Canyon produced much needed rain this week but watch as a cloud produces a rain shower and watch as that rain disappears.. Hot dry air from the depths of the Grand Canyon is probably responsible for the dissolution of the rain. I thought for sure I was going to be rained on. Watch in HiDef at Full Screen.
