Over the Rainbow


OK, my picture is not "over" the rainbow... This is Inspiration Avenue's weekly challenge, and it took me a while to find something appropriate. I finally came up with this end of the rainbow that we saw in Yellowstone a few years ago. What fascinated me about it was its fiery appearance, it looked like fire was falling out of the sky. It does match those burnt trees in the foreground, doesn't it? I intensified it a little bit in Photoshop Elements and added a Kim Klassen texture "dusty rose" and this is the result.
