I set out on a morning hike in a storm with camera backpack in tow to try and capture the essence of the red rocks in Sedona Arizona. The storms clouds were strengthening but the colors were becoming more and more vibrant. I set up for this shot and after several minutes was greeted by a double rainbow to photograph as well. Truly worth the early morning hike as the sunrise on the canyon walls was breathtaking.
