If you look very carefully, you can see a second, outer, rainbow forming. On this occasion nothing much happened with the second rainbow, or at least from where I was at the time. There hadn't been any rain locally but I guess there would have been a good shower nearby.

|Look carefully in the middle - the rainbow-like Circumzenithal arc|
Generally the arc will look like a smile but you still have to look carefully: these are the only photographs I have of Circumzenithal arcs and believe me, they're not easy to photograph.

|Mid summer Cirrus Uncinus|
Taken today, 14th July in the middle of a very warm and sunny spell of weather. Also spotted today:
Yes, I know the photograph below is not of some clouds as such. It was taken in a woodland area on the top of a hill shrouded in low cloud. So it is, sort of, a picture of a cloud - a nice misty scene early in the morning while it was still quite cool. Gradually the sun warmed up and the low level cloud melted away, leading to the pictures above during the afternoon.

The second was from the Brittany region and, as is often the case, the formation applied just after a rainy afternoon..
