There's few experiences like the 45 degree heat of a Namibian Summer Day broken by isolated rain showers like these. This cloud built up in less than an hour and seemed to literally rain itself apart again in less than 20 minutes.

Incredible display of nature to see rainclouds and a rainbow amidst such dry and desolate conditions, and you captured it very well!

Fantastic work, I love watching scenes like these evolve. Reminds me of summer in Kansas... minus the mountains ;) Must have been pretty early in the afternoon, that is one low rainbow. Gotta have one heck of a view to catch them low like that :)

That is one isolated shower alright! Gorgeous contrasting blue sky and red orange mountains. Do you edit or retouch your photos?
