Rainbow Over Sedona’s Red Rocks

Hi Everyone,

This shot of a rainbow over the Red Rocks of Sedona almost didn’t happen. It was Thanksgiving Day, several years ago, and we were going to a friend’s house for dinner. I wanted to bring my camera, as I usually do, but I thought it would be rude to bring it on this occasion. My wife, Linda-Ann, told me to bring it as you never know what will happen.

Canon Rebel XSi / 18-55 mm kit lens at 18 mm / ISO 400 / 1/125 / f/11 / hand held

We arrived at our friend’s apartment, and when she opened the door I could see straight through to the balcony, and there was this rainbow. Thanksgiving or not, I grabbed my camera and took some photographs. This was a very slow moving storm, so every 20 to 30 minutes I took some more photos. I was able to do this for about two hours before the rainbow disappeared. It was this event that cemented the words, “bring your camera,” into my mind.

Have you ever decided to take your camera at the last minute, and wound up with some great shots?

Have Fun
