Summary AuthorLorenzo Busilacchi; Jim Foster

This magnificent double rainbow was captured late in the day near Margine Rosso, Sardinia, Italy, on February 26, 2023. Both the primary rainbow and the less intense secondary rainbow can be clearly seen. As the secondary bow results from a second internal reflection of sunlight within a raindrop, it's dimmer than the primary bow and also broader. Another obvious difference is that the colors of the rainbow sequence are reversed -- red is on the outside of the primary bow and on the inside of the secondary bow. 

Photo details: Canon EOS R5 camera; Canon 15-35mm f2.8 IS lens; 15mm. Taken at 17:35 local time.
