i snapped some pics of a very strange rainbow over the sea in the strait between the north and south islands.
it was like a rainbow inasmuch as it appeared to be near ground level, but it really looked more like a chembow, except it wasn't in the sky. it also lacked the signature arc of a true rainbow and seemed broken and fragmented. the colours on it were very vivid, very brilliant. it was so obvious and noticeable that who knows, maybe someone with a better camera than my little phone one managed to capture some better shots of it. for what it's worth, i post my pics here.
i wish the pics were better but that's all i could take.
