Spring Shower

Quick shot from last night.  I’m getting to the point where I’ll have to start tapping into the archive shots if I don’t get my butt into gear soon.  Looked out the back sliding doors last night and saw a nice little shower off to the north with a good looking rain curtain.  Grabbed my gear and headed out the door.  I’ve always known about a service road that leads behind a few houses in our housing community but had never explored it.  Probably because of the large ‘No Trespassing’ and ‘Violators Will Be Prosecuted’ signs, but I was assured it was meant for dirtbikes and ATVs.  Along this road was a large native grass field on the north side that I thought would make for a nice foreground area, so I ventured on down the road.

I took a few captures and was happy with what I got and began the drive back to the house.  About a mile down the road, I noticed the sun was beginning to peak out form beneath a large cloud bank to the west and began to illuminate the rain under the shower.  Sure enough, on the right side, a little rainbow began to show up.  So of course I had to turn right back around and this is what I came away with.

  7. I thought No Trespassing, keep Out, etc were code for “Good stuff over here!”

    Once again, it proves correct.

  10. I’d love to see a rainbow shower. I was hoping for one all weekend at Monument Valley, and when it finally happened, it wasn’t in a good photo spot. Great capture!
