On of the great things about being a storm chaser is you get to see a lot of rainbows. My Friends always ask what I have been up to and the answer is always the same… chasing LIGHTNING, rainbows and unicorns…. Stay tuned for the unicorns 😉
This is a great farm country rainbow in eastern Colorado. A close up of the bottom of intense color. Got to chase this from a couple different angles. Hope you enjoy.
Here are some cool facts about rainbows.
Rainbows by definition is an arc of spectral colors that appears in the sky opposite the sun as a result of refractive dispersion of sunlight in drops of rain.
A rainbow is not an object, it cannot be approached or physically touched.
Sir Isaac Newton identified the 7 colors of the visible spectrum that together make up white light. All of which are present in a rainbow in the order red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet (the acronym or name ROY G BIV is a good way to remember these colors and their order).
A “moonbow” is a rare lunar rainbow or night time rainbow produced by light from the moon. Our eyes see it as white even though all colors are faintly present.
A “double rainbow” is where a second, much fainter arc can be seen outside of the primary arc. This is caused by the light reflecting twice inside the water droplets. As a result of this double reflection the colors of the second arc are inverted with violet on the outer edge and red on the inner edge.

This stunning artwork gets printed directly onto the back of a 1/4″ thick sheet of clear acrylic.
The image is the art – it doesn’t get any cleaner than that!
All acrylic prints ship within 3 – 4 business days and arrive “ready to hang” with four aluminum mounting posts (Option #1) or hanging wire (Option #2).
The high gloss of the acrylic sheet complements the rich colors of the image to produce stunning results.
There are two different ways to mount your acrylic print.
Option #1 (Mounting Posts) – Attach your print to your wall with four aluminum mounting posts. The cylindrical cap of each mounting post can be removed, allowing you to thread a small screw along the center axis of the of post and into the wall. When you’re finished, simply reattached each cap, and you’re done. The mounting posts act as stand-offs and keep your print separated from the wall by 1″. All of the required mounting hardware (i.e. posts, screws, and wall anchors) is included with your print.
Option #2 (Hanging Wire) – With this option, your acrylic print is attached to a 1/4″ thick black board which has a wooden frame and hanging wire attached to the back. There are no metal mounting posts at the corners. Simply put a nail in your wall, hang your print from the hanging wire, and you’re done. Due to the thickness of the black board and mounting frame, your print is separated from the wall by 1.50″
This is an incredible way to decorate your office walls, home walls, cafe, restaurant, boardroom, waiting room, trade booth or almost any commercial space. Museum quality art with fast, secure, world wide shipping to your door.
