Arching over the world famous Victoria Falls this mesmeric rainbow shines in the moonlight creating a nocturnal light show.

Known as a 'Moonbow', the hypnotic phenomenon was captured under the gaze of a full moon over 'The Devils Cataract' section of the falls.

Photographer and television presenter Charlie Hamilton James travelled to Cataract Island on the Zambezi River between Zimbabwe and Zambia, where he managed to observe this rarely witnessed event.

I have a photo of one of these as a Facebook cover picture.
They're awesome.

Miss me?

Wow, that really is something. Would love to see it in person one day, even if all the colours only come through on film. Thanks for sharing Still Waters :)
