Rainbow

Never been that close to a rainbow! It seemed that I could reach one of its ends, that started just across our driveway... It didn't last long - the rainbow moved further and further away, till the bright colours disappeared.


It was a very big rainbow - shame I couldn't get all of it into one photo! I need a panoramic camera... (Hmm... I'd really like to get a new one, just haven't decided what it will be.)


Scientific explanation of this wonder: a rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere. They take the form of a multicoloured arc, with red on the outer part of the arch and violet on the inner section of the arch.
