New on 500px : Summer Dells Sunset by Pcoskun by Pcoskun

There wasn’t much storm activity going on around Phoenix, so fellow photographer Nathaniel Smalley and I made a short trip up to Prescott’s beautiful Watson Lake. Driving up the I-17 it looked as if the entire town was being dumped on with rain. One of the largest rain shafts I have seen off in the distance. Getting closer, a couple sprinkles fell onto the roads, and with the sun breaking through, I knew there was a chance for rainbows. It wasn’t long after that we decided to head down a random dirt road and and capture the brilliant rainbow that seemed to last as long as the previous one. We still had about an hour until sunset and about a half hour from our intended destination. We quickly made our way up to the lake and just like last time, by the time we made it the rainbow had just began to vanish. Oh well, 3rd times a charm right? Moments later, the skies began to light up all around as the major storm system had moved further north. It was nice to get a couple of fresh images from here, and I am sure I will be back soon enough. This place is just too beautiful!

New on 500px : Sunset Under Agathla Peak by jstennant by jstennant

I always wanted to photograph this formation. Agathla Peak is very similar to Shiprock, but a bit less popular. I planned to shoot this on my way through Kayenta toward Colorado. I had it all to myself on a Friday evening. I couldn’t have asked for a better scene and a more satisfying moment as the sun peaked through the cloud layer. Mother nature really came through for me here.
