Default Perfect Shot

I do news reporting and photojournalism for my small town local paper. I got assigned a story on a controversial sale of an area right next to town. Issues include timber harvesting, watershed, viewshed, etc. I filed the story with a couple of straightforward shots. After a recent storm, I was driving with my wife when she pointed out the rainbow coming off the ridge. Drove around for best angle and shot this picture that will go with the story. Name of the area that will go with the headline? You guessed it. Rainbow Ridge. My editor was very pleased.
