Aircraft Juxtaposed With Rainbows

[caption id="attachment_28809" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Photo: Tim Bullen Photography"][/caption]

Environmental Graffiti has a beautiful set of photographs depicting various shots of planes and rainbows.  Starting things off is Tim Bullen's amazing picture of the aerial display group, The Red Arrows.

The Red Arrows are the crème de la crème when it comes to aerial displays, but as they tear through a rainbow, coloured smoke trails resplendent, is it a case of man outshining mother nature’s best efforts – or is the opposite true?

Also at the EG post, learn about glories - rainbows formed from a plane's silhouette and viewed from the aircraft on the top layer of cloud cover.

The photo was captured just at the start of the Arrow formation, the 2nd and 4th plane would have moved forwards a second after this photo was taken.

How did they arrange that.

I remember driving over the Pennines once with a friend and actually seeing the end of a rainbow as if it were planted in a field to our right. Before then I had believed one could never actually see the end of a rainbow. But I did, so there!
