Double Rainbow over Sandias, by Matt Tilghman
Double Rainbow over Sandias
 Loading image...
Bright double rainbow during summer storm over the Sandia Mountains of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Sandia Mountains, New Mexico
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.
