As the storm was leaving, the view from my back deck:



The whole rainbow:

I like the second image. The way the trees frame the rainbow is pretty cool. The only thing I'd do differently is crop in a bit closer.

Thanks for the suggestion - is this what you were thinking of?

Corpsy was right. The rainbow appears much brighter and well framed. Nice shot.

That's a great view you have, mtngal. When is your next BBQ?

LOL! Maybe next spring/summer when the weather improves. Hopefully we'll be skiing soon - this storm was a warm storm and what snow we had didn't stick. I'm hoping that the next storm that rolls through (whenever that might be) will be cold enough to drop some snow.

Mtngal-

Good photo and much better with the crop. Seems to draw the attention more to the subject rainbow as it should. The Monday storm was really ominous on my side of the mountains in the Mojave Desert as my earlier post showed.



One good thing about the storm passing through... it will clear the basin air for a few days so telephoto shots will be much improved...

Thanks for the complement,Ladyhawk- this view and the fact we have 4 seasons is the reason we choose to live here, in spite of our 150 mile round trip commute. We have clean air, great views, and occasional snow that doesn't stick around too long. What more can you ask for?

Telecorder - we often seem to be between weather patterns, so we sometimes get the edge of the northern storms and a bit of the southern storms, but rarely get hit with the worst of any of them. Your photos sure made me glad that I prefer the mountains to the desert!
