Posted: Updated:

CBS 5 News has a winner in the 2014 Monsoon Photo Contest.

Jerrod Harris, of Scottsdale, won $500 for his photo of a full, double rainbow.

Harris said he was driving to Sedona when he first spotted the rainbow and then began searching for the perfect photo opportunity.

"I stopped at a rest area and took a few photos of it and from there I went to Schnebly Hill Road and I was talking with my wife on the phone once I pulled over to the side, turned around, and there it was," Harris said.

Harris actually went to the University of Arizona to become a meteorologist but UofA shut down the program while he was there.

He ended up majoring in computers and is a storm chaser in his spare time.
