Rainbow of memories

Namaskar Kattekari,

Aaplya Scotsdale war kaal sandhyakali ek sundarsa indradhanusha prakat zala hota.

It was a rare condition when some of the light will bounce off the inside of the water droplet more than once, exiting at a different angle. This produces a weaker, secondary arc known as a double rainbow. I was a bit late to capture this phenomenon. However if you look closely in the image above, a offset rainbow can be seen slightly above the main rainbow. It starts two trees to the right of the main rainbow. If visible, the colors are reversed in the secondary rainbow. In theory there are additional rainbows (third, fourth) but those are too faint to see.
