A Look Back—Double Rainbow

Photograph of a double rainbow at Moss Landing, California December 15, 2008 was a productive day for photography. Several of my favorite shots came from the dramatic skies that accompanied a winter storm. I followed rainbows from Asilomar to Moss Landing that day.

Rainbows — Pastel Colors

Photograph of a rainbow over the ocean at Pacific Grove, CaliforniaJust a beautiful moment over the ocean. Until I looked at this shot later, I didn’t realize the colors of the rainbow were an overlay on the water itself. I had imagined the rainbow was cut off at the horizon.

Rainbows — Death Valley

Photograph of a rainbow in Death Valley, CaliforniaI was reminded of rainbows today and decided to do a short series of posts of rainbow images. There is something magical about an arc of color reaching across the sky. Hope, promise and good fortune are associated with rainbows. This particular image is from Stovepipe Wells in Death Valley. No rain was falling where I was standing but a tremendous wind was blowing so much dust that I had to retreat to my truck. March, 2006.
