    • Well, me being in the right place right time obviously got the gold 🙂 It was strange, as I could see a glow in the sky on the horizon, some minutes before I could actually see the rainbow. It was almost like watching the birth of a rainbow….

  1. I’ve never seen one so close to the ground, either – and look! In this third and fourth pics, there’s a double.

    One of my favorite sites is called “Atmospheric Optics”. It’s crammed full of pictures and information about every sort of thing – including this kind of “low bow” . There’s a good explanation of how its formed. I’m just thrilled that I know someone who got to see this and captured it for us!

    • Golly, thanks for that extra information Linda! The time I took these pictures was just before 2pm. At the time I thought it was a strange sight, and now I’m glad I didn’t ignore it. I kept driving towards the rainbow and pulling off onto the side every couple of minutes to shoot some more. Obviously it was raining, hence me still in vehicle, even then I took a shot, then had to wipe the lens before taking another one. I’m saving up for a waterproof system….
