an interesting local phenomina

Here's something you don't see every day.
A set of clouds forming around a rainbow.

Shot on my iPhone seconds after a passing rainshower had washed the sky clean.

The rainbow was present in the sky about a minute and a half before the clouds did their thing.

The clouds are still raining as they move away to the east and across Auckland's North Shore.

The rainbow just hung in one position as the image took shape.

The thing I don't get is the straight line formed behind the foreground clouds.

It is very sharply defined, but the clouds certainly do not match as the source of the shadow.

Amazing what you can see if you keep your eyes open....and happen to be looking at the right thing at the right time.

A beautiful image.
