During our August trip to Sedona, Arizona, the skies were generally clear overhead. However, there were usually wonderful clouds on the horizon and there nearly always seemed to be storm conditions somewhere in the distance.
In the evenings, I often drove the Red Rock Loop Road, looking for wonderful light over the red rocks. This evening, I just managed to get a couple shots off before shadows fell over Cathedral Rock. I was about to pack up when the real drama unfolded.
A rainbow appeared, the likes of which I'd never seen before. Instead of a delicate semi-circle, it was an Olympian beam of light descending almost vertically from the clouds.
