[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rainbows are optical illusions and meteorological phenomena that cause a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere. They take the form of a multicoloured arc, with red on the outer part of the arch and violet on the inner section of the arch. More rarely, a secondary rainbow is seen, which is a second, fainter arc, outside the primary arc, with colours in the opposite order, that is, with violet on the outside and red on the inside.

A rainbow spans a continuous spectrum of colours. Traditionally, however, the sequence is quantised. The most commonly cited and remembered sequence, in English, is Newton's sevenfold red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. "Roy G. Biv" and "Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain" are popular mnemonics.

Rainbows can be caused by other forms of water than rain, including mist, spray, dew, fog, and ice. Moreover, rainbows can have shapes other than a bow (arc), including stripes, circles, or even flames.

Rainbows can be observed whenever there are water drops in the air and sunlight shining from behind a person at a low altitude angle (on the ground). The most spectacular rainbow displays happen when half of the sky is still dark with draining clouds and the observer is at a spot with clear sky in the direction of the Sun. The result is a luminous rainbow that contrasts with the darkened background.

I have actually found the e3nd of the rainbow!!! I think perhaps though I was the second one to be there...because the Pot of Gold was missing...or maybe an apparition? Very nice rainbow from an area in which rain comes often in a day and options of plenty to get one just right....all it takes is patience an knowledge and all that "stuff" you have...

Hi Selen,

Beautiful landscape, the colours in the rainbow are well saturated, wonderful cloud formations, superb d.o.f, and I like the layers created from the river in the foreground right though the jungle foliage to that amazing sky, just perfect. t.f.s

Kind Regards Rick :)

Hi Selen!

I like this simple, yet very pleasant landscape picture very much. The atmosphere it reflects is peaceful and calm, and the colours - not only the ones of the rainbow - are superb and highlight this atmopshere. Moreover, the composition with the foreground formed by the palmtree is fine and creates a good depth of view. Your notes are interesting, too.

Kind regards


I love rainbows. It sort of means the rain might stop.Brilliant colour on this one Selen.
Hope you have as beautiful a day as this.

Hi Selen. They always amazed me as a child and i must admit i do still love to see them. What i like about the picture is the four different lines across the picture. The water , the trees, the far away trees , then the sky. I also like the one palm tree in the forground. all topped of with the colours of the rainbow. TFS.
