The photo above is a single shot showing a portion of a double
rainbow and rainbow wheel over the Tyrrhenian Sea, as observed
from the hill of the Sanctuary of Tindari (Sicily, Italy). After
many days of seemingly continuous rain, and then finally a few rays of
sunshine, it was an unexpected treat to be able to enjoy this spectacle
while driving the hairpin bends of the hill of the Sanctuary. Photo
taken on March 18, 2021.
Photo Details: SONY ILCE-7RM3 camera; 1/800s exposure time; ƒ/4
aperture; ISO 250; 35mm focal length.
