Photographer's Note

I took this picture of a double rainbow recently when I was on my way home from San Francisco. When I saw it, I pulled out of the road and took my Nikon coolpix from my bag. The main rainbow is beautiful and bright but the second one is hardly visible in my picture. I took several shots. Then I noticed that the area of the sky within the main rainbow is lighter than the outer area. I do not know why. Does anybody here at TE knows?
The picture was taken at Port Chicago Highway in North Concord near the BART Station (Bay Area Rapid Transit Station). You can see the BART rail on the lower right hand corner with white steel guards and white lamp posts. The highway below the mountains is Highway 4 (it runs East-West). The group of trees between the highway and the mountains is the former area of the Concord Naval Weapons Station. It has been turned over to the local city government by the U.S. Navy about a year and a half ago.
