Irrigation Rainbows

After our jaunt to Rossville yesterday, another ride that evening found the irrigation going in a bean field

This morning, somewhat surprisingly, the irrigation was still going

(how much water that draws in a good question, it has to be a lot)

8:30ish in the morning I wondered if the sun’s angle might produce a rainbow effect

Just a little farther south  . . . there it is!

Why did the red and violet switch ends?

Must be a series of rainbows but only one is visible from this angle?

Visible light being separated into component colors — sort of radiation in reverse?

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Wow! I gotta get going a little earlier and find some of those irrigator rainbows for myself.

      Thanks! Just lucky, I got in the right place at the right time — sunset may work too.

    I’ve been sprinkled on by those things, mostly in Europe with smelly river water, but I’ve never seen the rainbow effect. Cool!
