PADRE ISLAND, Texas — While, technically, there is no "end" to a rainbow since they are actually full circles of light being refracted, one woman caught an amazing photo of what looked like the end of a rainbow on Padre Island. 

We were sent several photos of the rainbow that graced the Corpus Christi sky on Tuesday but this one was by far the most interesting.

3NEWS Meteorologist Carly Smith said it is "not really an illusion, but if you were to walk closer you probably wouldn’t be able to find the actual end just because of how the light is bending and being seen by your eye."

Either way, it is very special to get a camera shot like this.
