Magical Storm

Uinta Mountains, UTAH

This photograph is #2 of 4 in a series of photographs all shot within a 90 minute period on July 3, 2020. The series is aptly named Summer Storm.

Rain was splattering the lens and I had to keep wiping it off, the wind was blowing causing ripples on the river surface and then the rainbow began to appear like an apparition. I waited at Christmas Meadows in the Uinta Mountains for the perfect moment to see what would happen. At 8:06 PM I captured this photograph of the amazing magical storm, a double rainbow in front of the mountains dimmed in a veil of rain and clouds yet lit by the setting sun. It was truly one of those moments I thought, "the only thing that could make this better would be a unicorn drinking from the river."

The Uinta Mountains (/juːˈɪntə/ yoo-IN-tə) are an east-west trending chain of mountains in northeastern Utah extending slightly into southern Wyoming in the United States. As a subrange of the Rocky Mountains, they are unusual for being the highest range in the contiguous United States running east to west,[1] and lie approximately 100 miles (160 km) east of Salt Lake City. The range has peaks ranging from 11,000–13,528 feet (3,353–4,123 m), with the highest point being Kings Peak, also the highest point in Utah. The Mirror Lake Highway crosses the western half of the Uintas on its way to Wyoming.
