Rainbow along the Caprock

Water makes a great prism, splitting the sun's rays into bands of color that countless billions of drops form into a rainbow. Here, Robert Prentice also illustrates that storm observers love their hobby for more than just tornadoes or other destructive phenomena. Even when a storm underachieves in severe weather production, as this did, it can make the trip well worthwhile. There is no more rewarding end to any storm-watching sojourn than an ever-changing canvas of hues, painted with the pastels of the fading day across the boundless Great Plains sky.
