|But wait - the secondary rainbow has the typical order of colours reversed, with red on the inside. |
As for the sunset, it was behind me when I took this picture.
Also... Note how dark it is between the rainbows...
Sometimes the most interesting sunset effects are on the other side of the sky. © SB
