On this evening during our AZ trip, we decided to visit a local park in the suburb of Tuscon. According to the weather prediction, it was not supposed to rain. As we were driving towards our destination we saw a big storm emerging from behind the Santa Catalinas. Since there were no Prediction of storm, we were initially hoping that our destination might be in some other direction, but it didn’t take us long to figure out that we are completely wrong and the park we decided to visit is just at the base of the mountains! By the time we reached the park, the storm was almost there and we could see some lightning behind the mountains. As we were approaching the trail a park ranger appeared and said we should not go far into the canyons since it could get bad very quickly with flash floods and what not. Sreemala asked him what should be the warning sign that would tell us to turn around and head back. The ranger said, “Well, if you cannot see the mountain in front of you, then you should immediately come back”. We thanked him and took the trail for a quick walk. We were only a couple hundred yards in the trail and we’re busy taking some landscape photos, when Pratyay casually asked – “Hey, where are the mountains? Do you see them?” 😉 Clearly, we had to head back soon after that. There was this a beautiful rainbow, although only partially visible, but there was no time to get to a good spot for a nice landscape shot. Here is that partial rainbow and crepuscular rays over a saguaro cactus. © Pratyaydipta Rudra * * * #naturephotography #amongthewild #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #photooftheday #shotoftheday #nanpapix #photograph #photographylovers #instagram #instagramphotos #natgeo #outdoorphotomag #stormyclouds #rainbow #crepuscularrays #arizonalandscape #arizonamonsoon
