Rare Western Rainbow by dyanstevens

Rare Western Rainbow

The clouds and the shadows they made on the mountains were super interesting this morning. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to stop for long, but did manage to capture the beginnings of a rainbow over the mountains. I've lived in Colorado most of my life and a rainbow to the west is a seldom seen event, in fact, it was my first.
Interesting clouds and rainbow. It would have to be morning for a rainbow in the west and mornings rarely have that much moisture in the air out west. Unusual weather.

@sarasotab Most unusual! It's been in the 80's the past couple of days and Halloween is supposed to be in the high 70's! As a parent who has had to go out in the past in frigid weather for trick or treating, this is a real treat. :)

I can only remember seeing one while we were in Grand Junction - and it did surprise me. Like the way you caught the color on the mountains.

Wow! That's an amazing photo! Those clouds sure were low and capturing the start of a rainbow is fabulous. I didn't realize that rainbows to the west were seldom
