World Photo of the Day: Rare Fire Rainbow [Photo]

The 'fire rainbow' was captured at 2,100m in Nepal by travel photographer Anton Jankovoy

"A travel photographer captured this spectacular fire rainbow - a 'circumhorizontal arc' - a phenomenon so rare he had to ask other experts what it was.

The unusual sighting of the horizontal rainbow was captured by Ukranian snapper Anton Jankovoy - using a camera set up with a large aperture to 'soak up' as much light as possible. The rare phenomenon is created by light reflected from ice crystals in high-up cirrus clouds."
