Dramatic sunsets are an almost everyday occurrence in the desert. This evening was a bit different. I was at my computer after a slight rain and looked out my window facing east. I saw a rainbow through the glass and ran out to see it. When I did go outside, I saw a cloud mass with a bit of a rainbow that seemed to spread through the cloud. I was facing east so I turned to see the setting sun behind me and realized it had to be a combination of the sunset and the rainbow that was taking advantage of the last rays of light. It never ceases to amaze me what a show the world puts on for us.

This is a great picture, I saw a rainbow in a cloud over the Mediterranean sea. I remember very well because it was the day my camera refused to work.
