Trail Creek Road, Park County, MT

Taken on my way home this spring, immediately after an intense hail storm. This picture, and most of the ones linked in my profile were taken on my way to and from work. (It's a rough commute :)

I'd really appreciate it if you clicked on the pic because the 2000 x 593 version is pretty neat.

I was sitting in the grass about 2-3 feet away with my 16-35 opened up to 16 mm. Close enough to get hit with bubble soap a few times.

While out chasing rainbows last summer (literally), I ran across this gem out along the Amish Frontier...it wasn't until after I pulled the images up on my computer that I noticed the lightning bolt under the rainbow. Skill, equipment and a good eye will only get you so far - sometimes you just get lucky.

2/3

This is how the piece looks when lit by the setting sun through some horizontal skylights that are off to the side of it. I find it interesting how the colors are inverted from the different light sources and how it changes minute by minute, day by day.

There's not really anything overly remarkable about this picture, technique-wise. However, this was taken at my cousin's wedding rehearsal this summer. Her dad passed away in 2005, and on the day he died, the day of his funeral, and other random days when we were having a particularly hard time with his passing, a rainbow would appear. It kind of became our thing - a way to bring us comfort (silly as it sounds). It was hard during the rehearsal, knowing he wasn't there, and someone had mentioned him right before this rainbow appeared. Luckily, I had my camera. This pic means a lot to me.
