Golden Rainbow Sunset by VFrance Golden Rainbow Sunset by VFrance
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz: :icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:
This past summer was packed with storms and rainbows, this particular storm I would have to say was the most beautiful from start to finish. Electricity was flowing across the sky ever few seconds and the thunder so loud you swear you had just been hit, but it was so pretty that no one wanted to take cover. Half the town was lined up on the road taking photos of this rainbow. In the opposite direction the sky was as gold as gold can be. If it weren't so loud from thunder, I would have thought that I had died and gone to heaven. I will up load a couple more from the Sunset of the Golden Rainbow...looking in the opposite direction.

For a peak at what it looked like in the opposite direction see:

Thanks for all the great comments! It was beautiful! I'd like to take the all credit...but I can't. It was all natural light show beyond compare EVERYTHING TURNED GOLD and then the rainbow appeared it was such a strange weather phenomena. I was just lucky enough to be at the right place, have a good camera and know how to take a good picture AND not get hit by lightening.

Thanks! I felt like I was high on the most incredible drugs when I was out in the field taking this photo. Lighting was striking everywhere with webs across the sky and very loud cracking thunder. But I had to get the shot! Something inside me just said NO you are not running from this storm. I would love to make it full view and I did make it full view for a while, but someone stole it. So now, I'm thinking I don't wanna make it available and I put the water mark on it. Sorry.
