Sea Spraybow

Spraybows can be seen in all sorts of places. Here the spray from the fast ferry to Dublin has created a faint bow.

Because it is seawater the radius is slightly different to a rainbow, though there would need to be a normal rainbow at the same time to see the difference.

Even on a fairly calm day the spray thrown up by the bow of the fast ferry can sometimes give brief glimpses of spraybow.
