Today we have some moon shots, the first from Nicole Reggia:
And this one from Stephen Barnard:
Here’s a modest attempt at astrophotography. The color cast is due to the moon being slightly obscured by a wispy cloud illuminated by the setting sun.
Stephen threw in a bull moose (Alces alces):
. . . and a landscape photo from last Sunday:
There was an intense rainbow this morning, right over the eagle nest. You can see a faint double rainbow in the photo. I was surprised that the progression of colors is reversed on the secondary rainbow with respect to the primary one. I never realized this before, so I looked at some google images and it checked out. Maybe one of your readers can explain the physics behind this because I’m at a loss.
Stephen later got the answer, but I’m leaving the answer to the readers: why are the colors reversed in the “secondary” rainbow?
