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 turn┬áthe 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.

Walking down the passage in the afternoon I came across this rainbow. Search as I might, I couldn’t find the pot of gold. I think Little Monkey must have eaten it!
