The Magic of Monsoon Sunsets and Rainbows

Full Sedona Monsoon Rainbow

What is Magic Time?

Magic Time or Hour is often referred to as the Golden Hour.  It is the first hour after sunrise or the last hour before sunset.  The light usually has red and yellow or golden hues to it making everything appear redder.

What is Reverse Sunset?

As the sun sets, the red, orange and yellow light from the sun's rays hit the upper atmosphere, bouncing back to earth and turning the red rocks even redder.  If there are clouds at the right angle, the whole area turns red below.  It is an eerie sight and is a subject for many photographers.

We had just finished having a scrumptious dinner at Elote Cafe when I noticed a light rain falling.  Sun was about to set.  As we got to the car, you could see a full rainbow and a partial double rainbow.  It was a beautiful and magical moment to end our night.

Hi Ray Henson,

You hit on such an important fact.  This all happens so quickly, and you have to be ready to go.  It is a shame you missed capturing that memorable sunset.  Fortunately, you have a lifetime of memorable sunsets yet to come!

Thank you Endre Barath, Jr..  My husband was driving and decided to go to a place where you can park and go hiking.  It is at the top of the hill. It was my first time there and it was special.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker - Thank you.  The combination of red rocks, pine and juniper trees as well as the clouds, and sky are the best inspiration for a photo.

Hello Sheri, fantastic pics.  Something about a Rainbow that draws all of us.  Perhaps it is its fleeting existence.  Mark
