Photographer's Note

This is a repost. Following a critique I received on another photo, I used Flickr to sharpen this image. I also added a little color saturation, cropped the photo to focus on the mountain (and remove the house), and added a frame that I thought accentuated the shapes.

This is the second in a series of photos taken as we left Jackson Hole and the Tetons southbound for Rock Springs. The last was already posted as “Wet Paint” and the first as “From Afar.”

A storm was blowing in from the northwest over the Tetons, and as we drove southeast we entered into the trailing edge of it and then kept pace with it over the next two hours and one hundred miles. As a result, over and over again we saw what would have been the end of the storm for the people living there; but for us it was just the beginning.

This was the first time we saw the rainbow, and we liked it so much, this is the part of the storm we chose to pace. Here it is rather subtle. Later, it became a double rainbow all the way across the sky. In this photo, it looks like a part of this uniquely shaped mountain, naturally rising out of the trees that you can see and the wild flowers that you can’t.

[I thought about calling this “Rainbow Included” or “Comes with the Property” because of the house. And I left the house in because I thought it gave perspective and offset the image rather nicely.] Note: the house was removed.
