Rainbow over Bavaria

Rugged mountains behind perfect semicircular double rainbow.

Matt Aust captured this rainbow while he was hiking the Kranzhorn Mountain in Germany’s Bavarian Alps on October 9, 2019. He said:

The weather changed every few minutes this day, starting with thick fog, rain, clouds and nothing to see at all. Finally it cleared, and within seconds, I was able to see all the valleys, river and tiny-looking houses from above.

Taking the photo of that rainbow was pure luck. I was on my way back when it was revealed. Grabbed my camera quickly, and as soon as I had taken the photos, it disappeared. It was just a really spectacular sight.

Thank you for sharing your image with us, Matt!
