Rainbow Fragment over the Ocean

Summary Authors: Lorenzo Busilacchi; Jim Foster

The conspicuous dash of color shown above was photographed from a cruise ship off the coast of Puerto Rico, not far from San Juan. It of course results from a rainbow. Clouds are obscuring most of this rainbow, but you can tell that the other end of the bow is off the frame to the right since with a primary rainbow the red colors always face outward. Photo taken on the morning of February 9, 2023, with the Sun at my back. 

Photo Details: Canon EOS R5 camera; Canon 100-400 ii lens; 400 mm focal length.
