Photographer's Note

Eretria, Evia Greece.

A rainbow does not actually exist at a particular location in the sky. It is an optical and meteorological phenomenon. Its apparent position depends on the observer's location and the position of the sun. All raindrops refract and reflect the sunlight in the same way, but only the light from some raindrops reaches the observer's eye. This light is what constitutes the rainbow for that observer. The position of a rainbow in the sky is always in the opposite direction of the Sun with respect to the observer, and the interior is always slightly brighter than the exterior.
