    I caught the most brilliant rainbow I have ever seen with my point and shoot in Volcano National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii.

    The bottom one was so bright it was almost blinding... and about eye level from the elevated road.

    Oooo, very pretty double rainbow...the lower one is indeed very vibrant. I'm glad you had your camera handy, so you could share this shot.

    Yeah, I was glad too... at the time (last year) it's the only camera I owned.

    The funny thing was, I was driving and wearing polarized sunglasses, and my wife pointed it out to me (I could barely see it in the polarization). I stopped, shot it, checked the little LCD and saw how bright it was, and then looked over the top of my sunglasses and BANGO it was bright. I swiched to regular glasses and we enjoyed it for about 5 minutes before it went away. I have a whole bunch of different shots of it, but this was about the brightest. At times, there was a third (very dim) rainbow... something about the mist in the air from the volcano's lava hitting the sea caused it I think, since there wasn't a raincloud in the sky (which was pretty well blue).
