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 Canyon Autumn- Vol. 2 Hidden Zion

I was amazed by the brilliant falls colors at Zion last week, but I also noticed some hidden areas in Zion Canyon that I really never observed before. We all take photos of those wide open panoramas but if you take your telephoto lens and zoom in on specific targets, its amazing what you can capture. And a few pics are of familiar spots but from new vantage points in the park.
