These two shots were taken yesterday morning around 7:30am from my deck, looking out across the Broughton Strait towards Vancouver Island. A squall was moving in across the Strait and the sun was low in the sky and shining brightly. For a couple of minutes there were multiple bows (supernumary) and the colour was intense. The rainbow lasted for another 10 minutes, but the multiple bows faded away quickly.
