Captured! First Rainbow of The Season

Conditions were ripe tonight for a summer rainbow as a passing storm with a setting sun produced some magic! A faint second rainbow is visible.

The Hills Are Alive With The Color Of Green

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.

 

Recent rains have greened up the hills and pastureland in rural California.

Where there are clouds, rain and sunlight, look out for the ephemeral rainbow.

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

Another Fabulous Rainbow

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.

Zion Rainbow Video

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.

 

 

 


Like A Rainbow

The monsoon season is just beginning in The United State’s Desert Southwest which means thunderstorms, lightning and rainbows. From this early evening.
