Caption: Cumulus cloud near a rainbow. Rainbows occur when the observer is facing falling rain but with the Sun behind them. White light is reflected inside the raindrops and split into its component colours by refraction. Cumulus clouds form as water vapour condenses in strong updrafts of air. Photographed in Kansas, USA.
