Isn't Hoya r72 supposed to block the light with wavelengths that belong to the visible spectrum? Doesn't that mean that the rainbow wouldn't be visible?

Good question. Infrared radiation is also known as heat radation, so the hotter the object is the better it should be seen in IR photos. But that really doesn't explain how the rainbow is visible. The rainbow shouldn't be any warmer than the rest of the drops in the air.

Infrared light and thermal radiation might be connected, but they're not the same thing - in the same way, thermal imaging and infrared photography are not the same thing.
Rainbow is nothing more than (to the human eye) visible light split into it's components - and IR light is of the same nature as what our eyes see, it's just that evolution decided that we don't need to see it. But some other creatures do.
Since the filter you used blocks almost all of the visible light under 720nm wavelength, I understand why the red component of the rainbow is visible, but I do not understand how the rest of the colours passed through it. The first time I see a rainbow, I must try to photograph it this way.

But enough with the boring technical stuff - this is a site about art, and this photo is just that :D
