This one is from around 5.00 this afternoon, looking west to La Gomera with El Hierro in the background with the sun reflecting off the ocean.

Here's one looking the other way, up the hill from the bottom of our garden just as the sun is coming up over the crater edge ...

Around 18.00 I took this one.  Pity about the new polideportivo lights in the foreground.  But of them all, this was the one most in focus with my little point and shoot camera.

I'm glad you took that because I nearly did, but got distracted by an idiot hound when I came in for the camera. It was stunning, and that photo does it justice!

That is so beautiful! The way the coulours all merge is fantastic. It looks like someone has smeared with paint.

That looks like Rainbow number 3 which we escaped just about that time this morning.  Rainbow number 1 soaked us as did number 2.  I am now frightened of rainbows.

 :rainbow:

I was going to put the pic below in the the "Well blow me down" thread, because, well blow me down, I've never seen a horizontal rainbow before.  But since Perikles included rainbows here I am putting it here.  This picture was taken this morning from near the base of the mountain above, looking to the north toward Los Gigantes.  I know the colours didn't come out so well but that is actually a horizontal rainbow!
