Double Down

Photograph by Claire Stepleton, National Geographic Your Shot

This image from Ravello, Italy, on the country’s Amalfi Coast, is yet another piece of evidence supporting the area’s reputation for stunning and romantic views. After a day of exploring Minori, the village in this frame, Your Shot member Claire Stepleton could thank her “boisterous” hotel neighbors for the opportunity to photograph this double rainbow. “My husband and I were resting at our hotel … during an early evening rain shower. I could have kissed [our neighbors] when they pointed out the emerging rainbows!”

Great photo of a magic moment. Fascinating how the second rainbow is not an echo of the first but a reverse image of the spectrum.
