Storm Over Long Valley

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On October 11, 2012 (10-11-12) a double rainbow appeared over the Long Valley Caldera in the Eastern Sierra near the town of Mammoth Lakes, Calif. When a double rainbow forms, the second arc is seen outside the primary arc, and has the order of its colours reversed, red facing toward the other one, in both rainbows. This second rainbow is caused by light reflecting twice inside water droplets. The photo was taken while it was still raining.
