The sky was cloudy. The rainbow colors were in a part of sky where the sky was not covered.

This optical phenomenon is called a "Moon Dog". This is almost like sun dogs, but a bit rarer. We already had some beautiful sun dog samples up in Dreamstime but now we have one moon dog photo too up here ;)

You can find more info about moon dogs in wikipedia
