The photo above showing just a portion of a particularly colorful rainbow was captured over southeastern Brazil, late in the afternoon of December 28, 2007. Though clouds and rain showers loitered in the eastern sky, the Sun shone brightly low in the west. Large raindrops produce bows having the purest colors, and a darkened background will further enhance the appearance of rainbow.
