During an excursion this past autumn to the Vatnajokull Glacier, the largest glacier in Iceland covering some 8 percent of its land mass, a fragment of a rainbow appeared. It remained in view for several minutes, warming our emotions in spite of the cold temperatures. Although it was cold, the clouds in the background obviously consisted of raindrops and not ice crystals. Photo taken on November 13, 2023, at 2.00 p.m. (local time).

Photo Details: Panasonic Fz10002 camera; f 3.2; ISO 125;1/1600 seconds exposure.
