The photo above shows a jaunty rainbow over Brockenhurst in the New Forest, Hampshire, U.K. After a mild winter here, the weather was wild in early April. Our first snow of the season was recorded on April 6! This bow was captured shortly afterwards. Rain showers having large raindrops tend to produce the purest colors. Note the supernumerary bows just beneath the primary bow.
