CALL FOR ENTRIES:  Open to ALL photographers!

Celebrate the magic of the universe! Whether it's summer, fall, winter or spring, the sun rises and sets... and on those special days, a rainbow appears. Competition images can reflect the contrast of devastation with hope, a ray of light shining through tall buildings, the wing of an airplane against an orange sky, a silhouette of a person or object against the late afternoon or early morning light, a couple on the beach, scenic with mountains, trees, through the window of your home or car, from a battlefield to your backyard! Add in a stormy day with monstrous clouds and all of a sudden the sun breaks through -- a rainbow or two becomes a majestic skyscape palette. It's Magical, uplifting, inspiring and soothing to the heart and soul.
