Scattering rainbows

Here is proof that white light is made up of all the colours of the rainbow.

When I took a shot facing the early morning sun, my trusty little Canon camera somehow managed to turnΒ the sun’s rays into this lovely colour spectrum.

You can split white light up into its constituent colours using a glass prism. This was first done by Isaac Newton.
