Eight Rainbows!

Eight Rainbows! Lehigh Valley, PA 

A photograph of eight rainbows appearing at once over the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania. Eight rainbows of varying intensity, appear simultaneously in the sky over the valley. This unusual phenomenon is caused by the refraction of light through water droplets in a hazy sky. These particular rainbows appear to descend into a crop of trees in the middle of the photograph (that's quite a pot of gold!) against a backdrop of large tree-covered dark hills in the background, and with a road, golden grassy field and power-lines in the foreground. Judging by the light, this photo was taken at twilight.
