Last night my wife looked up as we headed home following youth group and exclaimed, “I love it when you can see a rainbow around the moon!”

Sure enough, a cloud had passed in front of the full moon and a rainbow could be seen encircling the lesser light. Excited, I quick set up my camera and tripod and attempted to capture this phenomenon.

By the time I got back outside the clouds had rolled on, and only the lower half of the ring remained. I managed to set up a bracketed exposure before, and the result is below. Its not bad, but I wish I would have included some more stops in the bracket. Ah well, Such is life as a photography hobbyist.

I do like the lens flare, though. The moon was bright!
