Beautiful photographs of a rainbow over Oxfordshire were captured by Oxford Mail Camera Club members.
Following showers yesterday afternoon the rainbow appeared in the sky above the county, with some places even seeing a double rainbow.
Eagle-eyed Camera Club members were quick to snap kaleidoscopic pictures of the colourful arch.
Rainbow’s are a natural, optical illusion which is produced when sunlight hits rain at a specific angle.
During the phenomenon, a rainbow shows up as a spectrum of light: a band of colours that include red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
Ironically, the rainbow appeared in the sky as the world marked International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on May 17.
The rainbow, of course, being a well-know symbol of the LGBTQ+ community.
