Rainbows Over Lee

What with today’s weather consisting of sunshine and showers, it isn’t perhaps surprising that we’ve had a rainbow in the sky this afternoon. However, this is a particularly impressive rainbow… often they’re quite faint but this was really bright. Here’s a picture taken from the top of our house:

and here’s a slightly zoomed-in picture of the base of the rainbow:

You can see how clear it is in the close-up picture below, where you can even clearly see the violet end of the spectrum on the left of the arc. Often rainbows are so faint that this is nearly impossible to see, but it’s quite clear here (and I haven’t tweaked the image to make it any clearer):
