Simple Rainbow

After making through the border control and doing a bit of hiking on the Niagara River I finally arrived at the Niagara Falls. As I was passing it on my way to the parking lot I saw this rainbow illuminated by the low setting sun. After parking I grabbed my camera and started walking to it and taking pictures. I had some with the buses, and cars and people, getting all in the foreground, still I was taking them as I was afraid that it will disappear. Finally I was able to cross the road and get this one. The mist you see is the mist from the Niagara Horse Shoe Falls.

Btw, I took Step Back photo probably about two hours later, it is still one of my personal favorites.

    Great capture. I assume the rainbow came from the mist, illumated as you say by the setting sun.

    … illuminated, and striking contrast of the bare trees.
