Genesis 9 13 - Rainbow in spectacular ND sky with sunbeams soybeans and nearly full moon peeking in

"Genesis 9:13 - "I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth."
In the process of "chasing rainbows" on highway 281 near Churchs Ferry ND on July 1, this beautiful scene unfolded for us (I was chasing with my son and mother). The low sun lit up the young soybean field and distant cottonwood tree grove (a subject I've used in several past photos) with a warm glow, and a small cloud gap in upper left allowed a few sun rays to beam in from the heavens providing an unnecessary "hey, look over here"! And to top it all off, a gap in the clouds on right side of bow opened to reveal the nearly-full moon peeking in on the rainbow, as if it were jealous of all the attention the rainbow was receiving and wanted a spot on the stage (zoom in to see it).
This image was taken about 30 minutes prior to the majestic stormcloud picture series in my last post, but I thought this one deserved a spot all by itself. I have shot and posted many (dozens) of rainbow shots over past decade, but I don't think I will ever top this one for the amazing combination of elements.
