Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Twin rainbows over Sedona, AZ.

Twin rainbows over Sedona, AZ

After a rare day of rain in Sedona several months ago, I had a hunch that there might be a dramatic sunset.  So, I hauled my camera and tripod up a steep road above our hotel, and watched the sky turn dramatic shades of purple. Remembering the wise words of one of my photography instructors, I stopped shooting to the west and turned around.  “Sometimes is the best shot is behind you,” he said and in this case it was absolutely true.  That’s when I saw the first rainbow.  My heart racing, I fired off as many shots as I could.  Then, the second rainbow appeared.  Feeling like I had won the lottery, I kept shooting until the rainbows faded.  Passing another photographer on the way down the hill, he grinned and said, “That was something else, wasn’t it?”
