The 40 plus mile per hour winds were blowing sand and water this morning, but the reward was this brief rainbow!

This was at 1/6 of a second @ f/16 and ISO 320.  I used a Canon 1Ds III and 24-105 at 28 with a two stop hard edge graduated neutral density filter at the sun-line.

  1. Nice composition Ron! I like how the photo pulls you in deeper or pushes you out to the foreground (depending on where your eye first lands). I was just looking thru photos last night of the rainbow we had over Borrego Springs during our outing…

  2. Fantastic! I agree that the composition is perfect. Love the way those flowers survive and brighten the landscape in the middle of the rock and gravel. Can’t beat mother nature! It takes a guy like you to find it and share it with the multitudes!!! Thanks!

  3. Wow! What time did you capture this? Staying over at Palm Canyon and I can’t imagine you would have been out before the winds died down a bit. It was a WINDY night/morning!

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    I like your analysis Greg – I agree. I’m looking forward to seeing more of yours!

    Thanks Joni! Mother nature can sure be a great landscaper!

    Thanks Dennis!

    Hi Tricia – that was this morning at sunrise, it was really nasty up there! Funny, I might have been tempted to skip it this morning if I hadn’t already paid my $8!

    Thanks
