Sunset at the end of an unstable day on the Maltese Islands typical of the Autumn season. The beautiful blend of yellow to red to purple coloration is due to the setting sun shining underneath the cloud bases which absorb and emit the various colour spectrums. A scientific explanation can be found here http://www.physicsclassroom.com/class/light/u12l2f.cfm
The thumbnail herewith is a rainbow-like refraction in very thin clouds just behind the cumulus cloud that were developing. These minute water droplets were in the correct form to refract/scatter light rather than absorb it.
