Remedios the Beauty

This photo of a Fire Rainbow (taken by Matthew Haskill) is a rare meteorological occurence.  A meteorologist explains:
"The sun has to be in the right position — at least 58 degrees above the horizon — and the right cloud, a wispy and high up cirrus formation, must also be in place.
If the cloud is made up of the proper kind of ice crystals and the sun is aligned correctly, the crystals will act as a prism for the sun, producing a spectrum of colours that can last for hours.”
