[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Driving home from the Okanagan area in BC, I had just passed through a bit of a storm cell just as the sun was about to set. Seeing a great potential photo opportunity, I pulled over at a wide spot and waited for some great shots.
This rainbow had formed, plus there were some pretty cool lighted clouds passing by.
A bit of highlighting and cropping plus an increase in contrast and saturation made it all pop a bit more.

There is something migical in your photo. Delicatae warm light, dangerous stormy sky and the colors of the rainbow.

Very moody photograph in deed, you have captured the timing perfectly, with the sunlight breaking through and illuminating the foreground clouds and trees.

Félicitations et merci pour le partage.

Great picture!

Well spotted, and a nice view it is!
Youve captured a dramatic image with the contrast between rain and sun. The rainbow was a nice bonus too!

Hello Tim

Hi Tim
Spectacular lighting on this shot. There is even a sprite where the rainbow touches... very nice. Regards.

Hi Tim,
Great capture with a really warm mood. Great composition, with the rainbow positioned perfectly. Love the lighting. What is this little white thing on the right?

the colours and detail from the storm are great, it gives such a strange light and you have caught and shown it really well and posistioned the rainbow very nciely.


PT's tomorrow...

What a beautiful shot. So clear and the colour is magnificent.
Regards, Krzysztof.
