Crazy 360° Rainbow

Codi and I went to CPK for lunch today. When we got out of the car, I looked up and saw an amazing sight – a 360° rainbow – a perfect circle, directly above. It seems that there was some thick mist a few thousand feet up in the air, and that mist was creating a prism effect, just like a normal rainbow does, but this was located way up in the sky. I took about 20 pictures, most of which turned out quite well. I’ve only seen this phenomenon in Oregon – three times now.

I took this shot directly at the sun – shutter speed set at 4000 and f22.

I used the corner of a building to block the bright sunlight. Of course, I only got 75% of the rainbow, but it’s still a cool effect.
