Caption Contest: Jake Case’s Rainbow

Photo by Jake Case

Each month, Arizona Highways’ editors write captions to accompany the photographs we use in our stories. It can be a tricky task, so we thought we’d turn the tables. When we post a new photo here each month, you’ll have a chance to write its caption.

Write a good one, and you might earn an autographed copy of Editor Robert Stieve’s book, Arizona Highways Hiking Guide: 52 of Arizona’s Best Day Hikes for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

This month, get inspired by Jake Case’s rainbow at Marble Canyon, then post your caption in the comments section below.

Remember, a good caption tells the story of the photograph in 20-30 words (give or take). Feel free to be creative and have some fun with your words!

Your deadline: April 15. Remember, when it comes to a great caption, every word counts.


By submitting photographs to Arizona Highways via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr or other social networking sites, the photographer grants Arizona Highways electronic rights. No financial consideration will be paid to anyone for publication on the Arizona Highways blog or Website.

  1. A spring rainbow climbs out of the Grand Canyon into the clouds of a clearing afternoon storm.

    The extensive palette of the Grand Canyon is further enhanced by a rainbow

  3. Danielle Fullmer

    Look beyond the beauty and your wishes may come true in the end.

  4. A spectacular spectrum seems to ascend from the perennial canyon, as though the depths of the chasm were its origin.

  5. Linda Kibak

    Proof that there really is gold at the end of a rainbow.

    If you could close your eyes and visualize a place where colors of the earth and sky compliment each other in spectacular panoramic views, this might be what your vision would look like.

  7. Jack

    In Arizona where beauty meets beautiful !!

  8. Christi Hickman

    Feeling the luck of the Irish, we’ve found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

  9. Norma Nelson

    The beautiful Grand Canyon on a cloudy day with the gorgeous blue sky peaking through and a fabulous colorful rainbow, couldn’t get better then that.

  10. Millie Hendrix

    The real pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

  11. The palette of color that spills from the sky, at this exact moment in time, nourishes our eyes, tempts our understanding, and invites curious appreciation, but look again…stop…and linger….for, in truth, it is the omniscient silence that speaks.

  12. Candy Cane Colors add spectacular colors to an already spectacular view of the Grand Canyon.

  13. Sarah Dolliver

    From the Great Abyss rises the promise of a clearing sky

  14. Dave M

    There truly is ‘gold’ at the end of a rainbow

  15. Becky Limberg

    The sun citrus kissed rocks of the canyon glowing with springs new beginnings awaken with life as the distant rain clouds heavy with the coming storm form a spectrum bridge of light to lead the rain home and nourish the desert back to life once more.

  16. The beauty that God built…

  17. Arizona…the pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow!

  18. Each cloud a moment make,
    Each rainbow a memory in time,
    Each canyon hue an inspiration in glory.

  19. Alan English

    For me the best caption is Jake’s own words of awe and wonderment “I survived my first backpacking trip in the Canyon” 🙂 sorry if I embarrassed you Jake (no not really). I think Jake actually meant “enjoyed” but had survived and enjoyed mixed up.

  20. Val Rangen

    The gold at the bottom of this aspiring rainbow is fluid and blue…….water …..the life force that made the canyon and fuels its inhabitants, plant and animal alike.
