One of my photographs is now a textbook cover

My solo sojourn through southeast Utah's red rock country in spring of 2004 yielded a bounty of photos taken with my then-new Canon EOS 10D DSLR.

On my way out of the Needles section of Canyonlands National Park, an afternoon rainbow arched across the anti-solar horizon. I pulled off to the side of the road and did my best to capture an image. It was raining, and there was occasional motor traffic. And I wasn't keen to soak my expensive camera. So … challenges.

Years later, Conceptual Physical Science co-author, John Suchocki, saw a potential textbook cover in one of the images. He made it work, and the author team approved. So here it is, the cover of Conceptual Physical Science, 6th Edition, by Paul G. Hewitt, John Suchocki, and Leslie A. Hewitt: © 2017 by Pearson Higher Ed. ISBN 978-0-13-406049-1.
