Spring Storm over Machtesh Ramon

A Spring storm blew into Machtesh Ramon today, sending temperatures into the 40s with winds gusting out of the west to 25mph. It was all quite dramatic. A lazy Spring morning...suddenly the wind picked up...clouds blew over head...then showers, followed by even colder temperatures.

The machtesh was splendid in dappled sun, fog and rain. The colors are even more intense when set off by dark sky and spotlights of sunshine.

For a while a rainbow tried to squeeze through, but it remained very faint but still beautiful.
