    Rainbow on the Salty Playa, during Sunset, at Great Salt Lake 8/27

    After work I saw the storms west of Antelope and knew there'd be a chance for a rainbow. I'm lucky I got there in time; because I saw the tail end of it forming and within 10 minutes it was gone. I had wanted a better composition but the rain was coming in and lack of time.

    Very nice indeed. I really like the way the rainbow seems to 'smear' the red over the right side of the sky.
    Beautiful!

    Very very nice. But you have me wondering what is happening to the left, outside of the frame.

    That's a fantastic photo Mavourneen. Congratulation for your anticipation of the rainbow.

    I really love this composition and the enigma left for the viewer to guess what's outside the frame.

    That's a beautiful image. The colour and light are wonderful. Superb example of realising what might happen and being there for it.

    I think the composition is great. At first I was questioning about that strip of land beyond the water and whether it formed horizontal strip across the image that was too bold and distracting. But than I saw it as a strength in terms of distinguishing fore and mid-ground from background and in providing a stopping point for the eye to appreciate the rainbow.

    A real beauty.

    I agree with every positive comment but am compelled to reassert the following one made by Miltos:

    As with Mike, I can not add much at all.
    It is a staggeringly beauatiful shot.

    I really like the range of colours, from the mysterious blue on the left through to the kind of purply haze on the right, stone/beige in the front, with the rainbow in the middle.

    To see then capture it, just something else.

    Great work.

    Outside of frame to the left is where the Rainbow ends. This is one of the first images I got before it fully built.
