This is one segment of a spectacular rainbow through the mist at Niagara Falls (Canadian side). I'm facing the Horseshoe Falls with my camera, sun at my back. The snow covered trees and ground are coated with ice from the mist. Rainbows like this are a common scene on sunny days at the Falls.

If this scores well enough, I'll reward my voters with a shot of the entire rainbow, end-to-end :-).

Post-processing consisted mostly in levels, curves, saturation, and a little Neat Image. I also cropped from a larger photo and cloned out two small lamp posts towards either end of this image.

Thanks for looking, voting and/or commenting.

Wow, nice vivid rainbow. Good catch - nicely done (although the blues in the sky look a little processed).
