60 Beautiful Rainbow Pictures


This is a collection of the most beautiful rainbow pictures collected from all over the internet.

But, before we see the beauty of it, let’s understand the science behind that makes this beautiful natural phenomenon. A rainbow is caused by the reflection of light in water droplets in the Earth’s atmosphere, which results in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. Formation of rainbows are natural phenomenon and are rarely caught on cams.

You can never tell when it will occur and its always for short time. So its really hard to get a good photograph of rainbows, but when you see it, its always a beautiful view which you always remember.

    I am writing a short book about a difficult time in our family’s life. I expect to print about 30 copies. I plan to put a picture of storm clouds on the front cover and a rainbow on the back. I have not chosen which rainbow picture.
