|Rainbow above Elkhart Entrance, Wind Rivers.|
In Greco-Roman mythology, the rainbow was considered to be a path made by a messenger between Earth and Heaven.
The Irish leprechaun's secret hiding place for his pot of gold is usually said to be at the end of the rainbow.
There are also numerous religious connotations associated with rainbows.
Whatever your belief, you must admit that the spectrum of light we call a rainbow is a sight to behold and experience, especially after a storm.
This rainbow was just that, a sign that a strong storm in the Wind Rivers had come to and end, and promising drier times ahead. It has been a popular image for me, appearing in calendars, magazines, and most recently as a cover for a world-wide published book.
This image appears in my Wind River Gallery, along with many others from the area - a true pot o' gold in Wyoming!
