That drought that caused brush fires in California that I highlighted earlier this week, is now a recent memory. California gets rain in the winter and the hills get green, but this winter , they are green green. These hills are east of Paso Robles, on the way to the San Joaquin Valley.
Recently shot time lapse video of monsoon storms over Arizona’s Marble Canyon including a rainbow. Still shots of rainbow can be viewed at previous post One Amazing Little Rainbow
Watch video at Full Screen at HiDef. Music by Underworld.
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
Still photos from last week’s big rainbow at Zion National Park, Utah. I looked out my bedroom window and noticed dark stormy clouds to the northeast and sunny skies to the west. Ripe conditions for a rainbow. But I had to wait patiently until the rainbow manifested as the setting sun was obscured by clouds. I almost gave up. But then the clouds parted and shafts of light shined on the remaining rain clouds.
A sunset shot.
Another monsoon storm this week produced one fine rainbow at Zion National Park including raindrops. Yesterday’s monsoon brought flash floods that ravaged the area. Luckily the warnings were made earlier in the day. Watch in HiDef at Full Screen. Still photos to follow soon.
The monsoon season is just beginning in The United State’s Desert Southwest which means thunderstorms, lightning and rainbows. From this early evening.
Weather conditions were ripe for producing rainbows last Saturday.
Persistent rains and thunderstorms continue to invade Southern Utah and Zion National Park. Flash flooding remains a threat as Pacific storms migrate from Southern California. Which of course can provide some dramatic photos.
