Photographer Greg McCown had a lifelong dream to capture a rainbow and a lightning in a single image. This may seem crazy but if there is one place in the US where the weather is crazy enough to pull this off, it has to be Arizona.
Two days ago, his dream came true. Greg was driving on the I-10 and was hit by a wet microburst which brought the traffic close to a standstill and visibility down to 20 feet. Seeing the rainbow Greg decided to chase it and try to get his prize shot. Luckily he did.
Greg spotted a clutter free location, parked over and set his Nikon D600 to work with a lightning trigger. Luckily he caught the last lightning to hit the ground before the storm vanished.
If you wanted to know the gear and setting, Greg used a D600 mounted with a 28-80mm lens, shooting at F8, ISO 50, 1/125 second, at 28mm. Now that you have the settings, all you are missing is the lighting and rainbow.
