Rising of the Rainbow

A planned sunrise photo turned around into a unexpected almost whole rainbow. Went out for looking for a sunrise photo to near Blue Mesa Reservoir, Gunnison, CO. Went hiking up to setup, waiting for the sunrise. I realize behind me I could see the raining pouring down, inching its way toward me. I was about to head down so I wouldn't get soaked because I wasn't properly prepared for the rain. So I hesitated and waited to see what the sunrise may bring. When the sun rose up, it was beautiful as most sunrises are but I then turned around and found myself in front of a massive, yet almost whole rainbow. Stunned, I quickly re-aligned to capture the rainbow. After everything was said and done, I was soaked, my camera was soaked, but I was still shocked and happy to experience something once-of-a-lifetime.
