Rainbow on Ocean
What you're looking at is a picture of a rainbow hovering directly over the ocean. I was taking this picture from above. You see, I was on the passenger deck of this large, fast-moving ship known as the Hawaii Superferry (more on the ship, the interesting trip, and the controversy later).
It was late morning, the sun was almost overhead. The ship's hull swiftly cutting through the water cast a fine spray out over the ocean. The coincidence of sunlight, fine water droplets, and my high angle of view made this photo possible. Not many people appeared to have noticed but I did... and it's something you don't see every day.
