Rainbows Over The San Cristobal Valley

Rainbows over the San Cristobal Valley. When simply heading to the mail box, or anywhere else for that matter, it is compulsory here in New Mexico to pull over and look at a rainbow. We waited for the second rainbow to fully form but the storm was moving very quickly and it didn’t quite make it. The main rainbow lasted for about twenty minutes. Not a bad way to spend twenty minutes during the day. Thanks for looking. G

Flashback: Harvest Moon Rise, Taos Mountain storm with rainbow, 2016. Searching the hard drives today looking for images to send to a publisher, I came across this image. It surprised me that I hadn’t posted it before. Hope you like it. Thanks for looking. G

San Cristobal Chapel Rainbow

San Cristobal Chapel Rainbow. The other end of the rainbow from last night’s image which was made shortly after this one when the sun returned to the skies. The torrential rains rutted the road in places, filled the ditches and deposited rusty tin cans from ancient dumping grounds in the woods. When it rains historical artifacts rise to the surface. Thanks for looking. G

Magpie Rainbow Sunset

Magpie and rainbow from San Cristobal, New Mexico. I love it when I go out to watch a weather event happening and there is a compadre right there with me. This is one of the parents who have a nest in our juniper trees. When the juveniles started calling, demanding attention, this bird took off to take care of their needs. I stayed for sometime longer to enjoy the scene and watch the sunset and numerous lightning strikes. Thanks for looking. G
