I actually thought about it quite a bit and I think it’s perfect.

It has to be close to sunset because of the size of the rainbow and the light source for the rainbow must be 180^^o opposite the rainbow. You can see in the ruins in the foreground that they’re lit up by a yellow evening sun, also the light is cut off at a glancing angle towards the base of the pillars showing the low angle of the sun and you can see stars starting to emerge at the top of the painting. The storm comes in from the right side which is giving the droplets for the rainbow and the observer is in the shade. The only way I can explain the oberver’s shade is that there is a cloud passing behind and/or that a mountain is rising to the right obstructing the setting sun’s light.
