Rainbow


Sunday in Phoenix saw a huge change in weather patterns.  We went from over 80 (26C) degrees to 48 (9C) degrees overnight when a winter storm moved into the valley.  The folks in the mountains got hit even harder with lots and lots of snow.  Late in the afternoon when I stopped at a friend's house I was met with this beautiful rainbow.  Sorry about all the power lines and poles.   There was no other way to capture the moment.

We had a great view of the sky over Camelback at about the same time, but did not see the rainbow.

i think the powerlines and poles actually add to this photo. without them, this would be just another 'rainbow' photo, but you have added a lovely contrast by keeping them in the frame.

Well done Sharon, gosh that's what I call an impressive sky, it's a perfect background to show off the rainbow.
