MARANA, Ariz. – Two of nature's most impressive creations were captured in one photograph by a very lucky photographer.

The photo of a rainbow and lightning bolt captured by Greg McCown has quickly gone viral.

McCown, a photographer from Tucson, Ariz., said he was shooting near the town of Marana on Saturday before getting caught in a rainstorm.

According to PetaPixel, McCown and some friends noticed the full rainbow and started driving towards it.

McCown says the bolt he captured in front of the rainbow was the last one before the storm completely dissipated.

Once it was posted on McCown's Facebook site, the picture exploded, having already been shared over 81,000 times.
