Said Hammett in an email accompanying this photo, “Untouched photo taken 8 a.m. in Palm Springs area looking west where WECS is now involved in commercial solar farming… Storm coming in from west coast brought wind and clouds toward the valley. High winds blow out the clouds, but brings in sprinkles from miles away. Morning sun in east creates the rainbow.”
