    Rainbows    

 

A rainbow formed in waterfall spray. A small part of a secondary rainbow is also visible. (2009-06-18)

 

To the right is a primary rainbow with some supernumerary rainbows, and to the left a secondary rainbow. (2010-06-29)

 

A rainbow formed during sunset. Since this was taken during sunset, the dominant light at this moment was red light, which is why the other colors are a lot less intense in this rainbow than they usually are in rainbows. (2012-05-20)

 

[ normal || enhanced ] ⇛ Several supernumerary rainbows (the smaller ones to the left of the main rainbow). Supernumerary rainbows form when the droplets are of a very uniform size. (2012-07-11)
