At 12,300 feet above sea level my primary goal that afternoon was to capture a sunset on the very top of the Rocky Mountains. As it frequently happens in summer time in the Rockies quick isolated storms pop up. I was so focused setting up my tripod and remote shutter release to capture a sunset from the west that my wife had to tell me to turn around to see the rainbow from the east. The sunset shot had to wait.

Isn't there an old saying about 'Behind every successful man, there's a woman'?
Apparently, there's one behind great photos, too.

Well caught.

I like the way the light from the setting sun highlights the wooden fencing which in turn serves to complement the arc of the rainbow and the curve of the rainbow itself which seems to hit earth just over the edge of the hill in front of you (a pot of gold just over the crest of the hill???).

So glad you had eyes on the back of your head (your wonderful wife) to let you know about the rainbow. They are so fleeting and it's a testament to what a fantastic photographer that you are that you were quick enough to set your camera and grab this beautiful rainbow along with the golden glow of the sun shining on hillside and fence.

Divine light. "Other half" makes us whole in more ways that giving us eyes in the back of our head.

An excellent shot with or without the rainbow, the light is amazing. the detail in the fence adds to the appeal.

I have always noticed that the sunset colours are just as attractive behind the viewer. Super colours Gary and a very well composed image,
