This photo is really cool. Suspiciously cool, even?

Sure, we've all seen lightning. And if we're lucky, we've caught a glimpse of a rainbow on occasion. But both at the same time? Next to a cactus? Get ready for the conspiracy theories to start flying. You heard it here first: Someecards is starting a rumor that this picture is photoshopped, based on nothing other than our will to cause mischief and shake up the lightning-rainbow establishment.

The image was shared on Facebook by Greg McCown, a photographer who actually has taken a ton of cool lightning pics. He wrote, "After years of trying I finally got my lightning and rainbow picture." That does make the photo seem legit. I mean, if you've spent years working hard in pursuit of an elusive lightning rainbow picture, it would make sense if eventually you accomplished your dream. On a related note, maybe I should be setting more awesome goals.
