Distant Rainbow

Rainbow in a distant shower

Rain from a distant shower catches the low evening sun to give a short rainbow.

I was standing in very light rain and had hoped for something more extensive. However there weren't enough drops so there was only a very faint arc extending above the brighter distant one.

The faint arc is from drops no more than a few hundred metres away but the distant shower must have been at least 10 kilometres away.
