I shared a different version of this same scene on Christmas Eve, the same day the images were taken. But, due to the holiday, I don’t think many folks saw it and I feel it is worthy of another look. Sunrise along the Front Range saw some rain showers, an unusual thing to experience at the height of winter.

As I drove around looking for a worthy critter to photograph, I came across this scene. Dark, storm clouds were hovering over the foothills and a gorgeous rainbow had materialized. Throw in the farm and horses down below and the sunlight streaming on the hills, it was pretty darned cool.
