Golden Hour- EXTREME edition

We have lived in Arizona for a year now, and I am still obsessed with the changing skies.  On Monday night, we looked out the window to see this (captured with my iPhone):

Photo Aug 25- 7 02 00 PMI grabbed my Nikon and ran outside.  Unfortunately my macro lens (85mm) was on the camera, but, knowing how quickly light can change, I didn’t take the time to change it to my zoom to be able to capture a wide angle view. By the time, I got outside, the rainbow had faded and everything was bathed in an almost eerie golden light.

The clouds in every direction were shades of pink and gold, which darkened during the 5-10 minutes I took these photos.
