Welcome to Farktography!
This Week's Theme: "Roy G. Biv"
: Rainbows, opalescence, and other visual effects of diffraction.
We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.
With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.
Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at) and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)
- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

Method Number 367 to make your neighbors think you're nuts:
Stand in their driveway with a prism to see if you can put a rainbow on their roses,
then take a picture of your own shadow with the prism and the rainbow. Full Size

I'd really appreciate it if you clicked on the pic because the 2000 x 593 version is pretty neat.

I was sitting in the grass about 2-3 feet away with my 16-35 opened up to 16 mm. Close enough to get hit with bubble soap a few times.

Opal and Diamond Alpha Delta Pi sorority badge from 1955. They (quite literally) don't make them like this anymore.

While out chasing rainbows last summer (literally), I ran across this gem out along the Amish wasn't until after I pulled the images up on my computer that I noticed the lightning bolt under the rainbow. Skill, equipment and a good eye will only get you so far - sometimes you just get lucky.

Taken on my way home this spring, immediately after an intense hail storm. This picture, and most of the ones linked in my profile were taken on my way to and from work. (It's a rough commute :)
