Summary Author: José Fernández Arozena  

Surely there must be a pot of gold at the bottom of this intense rainbow! It’s seen here on La Palma Island (Canary Islands) arching over a solidified lava field, from the 2021 volcanic eruption of Cumbre Vieja (in background). The lava flow from this eruption covered 8% of the island, destroying a large part of the Aridane Valley. The drone in the foreground hovers just above a fragment of the secondary rainbow. Photo taken near sunset on January 3, 2023.
