~ Vertical Rainbow at Sunrise, Chandler, AZ ~
It's a 2 1/2 hour drive from Tucson to Mesa, and my first REALTOR appointment was at 8:00 a.m. I was up at 4:30 and on the road by 5:30. It was dark when I stopped at Starbucks on Cortaro Road, and dawn was beginning to brighten the edges of the sky when I passed Picacho Peak.
Sunrise in December can be especially beautiful in Arizona when the rains come, as they have this month. It's raining tonight as I write this, and the clouds were already in evidence at dawn.
This photo is looking west, away from the rising sun, and what you see in the center is a vertical rainbow. I was just coming into Chandler, and with the traffic picking up, I didn't want to stop and pull out the camera. This photo, somewhat blurred by the speed of the car, was taken with my Droid Pro pressed against the window. I liked the effect enough to share it with you.
Maybe Lenn Harley will turn it into a real painting! She's done it before with my photos.
