Sometimes you see something so incredible that it fills you with both joy and sorrow. Joy in the witnessing and sorrow in the fact that you’ll never see it again. At least I can take comfort in the fact that I had my camera with me, even if I didn’t have the best vantage point. What you see here is part of rainbow that literally exploded out of the (almost) darkness. The sky hung low with winter clouds and a cold rain was battering the last light of day into dismal submission. Suddenly, just before the sun was about to slip over the horizon, a think crack in the cloud blanket allowed the day one last gasp. And what a gasp it was. I wish I had a wide angle lens so I could have captured what was the most brilliant and perfect rainbow I’d ever seen. However, a part is better than nothing any day.
One final note: The color in this image was not enhanced by me. In fact, I think the original scene was even more intense.
