Artist's Description

At the time I was taking this photograph, I had not yet learned the weather patterns of the Chihuahuan Desert, nor Albuquerque in particular. All I knew was that a storm was brewing, and bad weather is the time for good photographs. Albuquerque would prove to be no different. As I was racing to find a location, a famed New Mexico summer monsoon outpaced me overhead. Most of the precipitation did not even reach the ground, but rather evaporated in middair — a phenomenon known as virga. As sunset neared, the sunlight reached just the right angle to be filtered by the virga, creating a stunning double rainbow while simultaneously lighting up the clouds and the dramatic Sandia Mountains bright gold.
