The monsoon season really brings some great skies. While shooting in a moderate rain, there was just enough of a break in the clouds for the sun to peek through and light up Cathedral Rock, while also delivering an intense double rainbow (couldn't swap lenses to get the double due to the rain at the time).

That's a beauty. (Rainbows are always double, you just don't always see both.;))

Didn't know that (and I probably should have)...thanks for filling me in on that (as well as for the compliment).

Thanks. It was a great evening for shooting, in spite of the rain. There was enough of a window of time where the light fell on the Cathedral formation...enough to squeeze off about 10-15 shots from various vantage points (made for a lot of running around, though). :)

Thanks all. There's a lot to be said for being in the right place at the right time (as well as for remembering to look behind you every once in a while).
