    I don't even come close to what most of you on this site can do with your cameras but occasionally by random chance I am in the right place at the right moment and capture something special. I don't posses the skills to manipulate a photo either so typical what you see is what you get with my pictures. This one I did use PSE to auto correct the color. I am pleased with the result, sadly the picture doesn't even begin to show how vibrant this rainbow was. I have never seen anything quiet like it. I was also pleasantly surprised when I pulled the photo up on my computer to see that there were two rainbows.

    On our way to Angels Landing it begin to drizzle and then steady rain, thankfully as we started up the chains it did stop and the sun begin to come out. This was the result...

    The rainbow hit the valley floor... I actually saw the end of the rainbow.

    What rainbows do you awesome photographers have? Please share.

    Great thread idea, Chere!

    This was one of the most amazing rainbow scenes I've experienced but it didn't capture very well. I wish there was someway to bring out the colors in it but I haven't figured it out. :(

    I know how you feel about that Nick. I love rainbows and so hard to capture the moment.

    While not quite a Rainbow, I witnessed this Moonbow while camping in Anza Borrego Desert State Park over New Year's, 2010. It had been storming to our west all evening, but stayed dry to our east, allowing the near full-moon to rise unscathed and create this awesome reflected night light.

    I'm totally envious, I would love to see a moonbow by myself.
    Great capture, Tim. What a rare sight, you perfectly captured it.
