Photographer:

Rod Hoekstra, Seattle

Photo taken: May 21, John Day Fossil Bed National Monument, Ore.

Photographer's

description:

"I stopped in the Painted Hills toward sunset and was treated to this rainbow when the sun popped out. Shot with a Canon 50D camera and Canon 10-22mm lens."

Expert says:

"The sunlight highlights the layering of color in the hills, while the absence of the light allows the background to cleanly fade out. Shooting from a lower elevation and angle would help the hills rise up and fill more of the frame."
