About the Shot
GENESIS This image was truly a gift of light. I had spent quite some time in Arizona trying to find the best angle to capture the beauty of these mountains. Most people think when they come to a desert you'll find sand and cactus. I was shocked at the beauty Arizona had to offer. This location was definitely a favorite of mine. I had probably spent ten years or so shooting sunsets over these mountains trying to find the perfect clouds. Then one day I'm shooting and a rainbow pops out behind the mountain. No rain in sight, just clouds and a rainbow. With the sun hitting the horizon the colors began to pick up in the clouds. A creation for only a few minutes but made every trip to that spot worth it.
