Emley Mast is somewhere under the rainbow; PICTURE of the week.

THIS huge rainbow dwarfed Emley Moor Mast along with the surrounding area.

It was taken by Examiner photographer Andrew Catchpool from Shepley and is a brilliant example of that trademark sight of April as a mix of sunshine and showers.

A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the sun shines on to droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere and takes the form of a multicoloured arc.

In a so-called primary rainbow - the lowest and also normally the brightest rainbow - the arc of a rainbow shows red on the outer or upper part of the arc and violet on the inner section. This rainbow is caused by light being reflected once in droplets of water.

In a double rainbow, a second arc may be seen above and outside the primary arc and has the order of its colours reversed.

This second rainbow is caused by light reflecting twice inside water droplets.
