Rainbow prism in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow folklore is overrated. The rainbow is the golden payoff. This scene reminded of of the rainbow prism on the Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon album. Thanks for looking. G
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
A couple more images.
A rainbow and the local church in San Cristobal last summer.
Rainbow and storm in the valley.
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
Arroyo Hondo rainbow and a half. The last storm made for some nice images of rainbows and fall colors. Most of the aspens up high are done until next time, so it’s up to the cottonwoods to do their thing now. I’ll be watching and as always, thanks for looking. G
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
San Cristobal Valley Rainbow. Stepped out this evening and thought to myself about how far do I really need to go, from this place I call home, to find beauty? I think I will stay right here. Thanks for looking. G
Rainbow over anthill in San Cristobal, NM. When I get down low enough I can see how even the smallest creatures get a view of a rainbow with the rest of us.
Cottonwood rainbows. What the magpie in yesterdays image didn’t see. As the rain clouds moved through and the sun played peekaboo behind the clouds in the west, there were two rainbows, then one, and then a brighter one, and then two again. This is another view I had yesterday from the deck in San Cristobal. Thanks for looking. G
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
Spring rainbows over red willows and cottonwoods with Taos Mountain barely visible through the rain. Made in a favorite location of mine in Taos, New Mexico. Thanks for looking. G
The storm left a rainbow in it’s wake across the fields to the mountain. A great location for sky watching in El Prado, NM.
Taos Mountain Meadows
65 mph rainbow … driving home through the San Luis Valley, Colorado. We were in the rainbow for a number of miles as the sun set. At some points along the way we could just make out our shadowy selves, under the rainbow, in the the cab of the truck.
