Rainbow Family

September 20th, 2010 Permalink

I had been camping for a few days with a group of Rainbow Family members. It was about 7 a.m. when I wandered in the Montana Mud camp kitchen, It was dark under the trees, but I followed a shaft of warm light that led me to these sleeping Rainbows. I quickly searched for a composition, settling on this spot shot with 14 mm wide-angle lens. I like the dog is this snap. In all but one shot he was turned away. This photo led the front page. It is one of my favorites this year. I think I like it because it is pure. The subjects’ were unaware, making it a real moment.

With cool nights in the Colville National Forest, many Rainbow Family followers sleep communally around campfires. About 300 Rainbows are attending this regional gathering, but a national gathering next year could attract thousands to a Washington state forest. Colin Mulvany/The Spokesman-Review
