Unusual Photos

The above photo is a rainbow taken in January, 2001 with a telephoto lens.  Rainbows in January are extremely rare.  Note how the colors seem to repeat on the right side of the main bow.
The above photo was the result of an ice storm in Feb., 2003.  The wheel was spinning rapidly due to a high wind, freezing rain fell on the spinning wheel, and the raindrops froze as they were forced outward due to the centripetal force.  See a complete discussion here.
