Oui, sans doute la cent milliardième photo du Grand Cayon !
Mais comment résister à cette merveille que nous a offerte la nature, sans cesse différente d’un moment de la journée à un autre et d’un point de vue à un autre, distants d’à peine 100m !
Aujourd’hui, comme assez souvent en été, le théâtre d’un orage aussi violent que spectaculaire.

Yes, very likely a zillion shots of grand canyon before this one !
But how to resist before such a marvel that nature offers us, ever changing from one hour to another or from one place to another, hardly distant by 100m!?
Today, like rather often during summer, the theatre of a thunderstorm as violent as spectacular.

what a lucky man you are :)
I have difficulties to catch just one rainbow, but you have two in a single photo :) Great timing and impressive photo. Congratulations.

the scenery is wonderful by itself but I must admit the rainbow makes this unique and different than the other photos. The cloudy sky is also another great bonus. Very well done!

Oui une de plus sur les cayon, mais une jolie avec en prime un arc en ciel en prime.

this was not easy Patrick.
you made a fine one here, from a famous place, the double rainbow is a bonus, to be on a place with difficult light and made a fine shot like this, very good photo job here, thanks for sharing have a nice evening.

for a scanned photo the quality is excellent, I don't mind the slightly visible grain in the sky. perfect timing to capture this magnificient sight, I particularly like the play of light and shadows on the canyon walls, it adds a great sense of depth and distance. great shot, my compliments.

I see you got a canyon fever now. This is a fantastic POV. The double rainbow is a delight. It is good for a scanned image. The noise is unavoidble with scan film image. thanks

It is surprising to meet a nature photo of you. Hope I have a chance to catch sth like that once in my life. Rainbows are marvellous, cheers

Wow! A great shot from one of the most beautiful places on earth. I like the saturation of colours and the perspective showing the rainbows. Well done!
Thanks for sharing,

Je comprend que tu n'ai pas pu résister devant un paysage si magique!
Un point de vue fort bien exploité, une superbe lumière et une très belle présence du double arc en ciel qui donne du volume à l'ensemble qui est superbe!
Bravo à toi et bon dimanche

difficult but such a fantastic light!
This is the best place to have for a background when photographing a rainbow.
I envy the shot. However I plan to be there in about two three weeks, so who knows...
I have tried a noise filter on your shot, you can check the result in the workshop.
Thanks for sharing,
that is a fantastic catch.
