In a rare display of grandeur,
These photos were taken of a morning rainbow east of Park Ridge in the Sequoia National Forest, California. Taken at an altitude near 5,500 feet, the unique vantage point of a horizontal cloud cover provides a glorious view of a morning forest rainbow. Just behind this ridge lies the giant Sequoias of Grant Grove in the Kings Canyon National Park.
These photographs were taken with a Canon 5D MK3 sporting a 70-300mm lens, and colored for taste.
“We have fallen heirs to the most glorious heritage a people ever received, and each one must do his part if we wish to show that the nation is worthy of its good fortune.”Theodore Roosevelt in his address to the citizens of Dickinson, North Dakota on the 4th of July, 1886.
