A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection of light in water droplets in the Earth's atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun. In a "primary rainbow", the arc shows red on the outer part and violet on the inner side. This rainbow is caused by light being refracted while entering a droplet of water, then reflected inside on the back of the droplet and refracted again when leaving it. (From Wikipedia)

Perfect timing for catching it in splendid positions. Excellent capture of landscape view and clever usage of panoramic frame. Very good clarity and sharpness, in natural colors.
Have a nice evening,

I like this strongly and clearly defined rainbow between the grey clouds and the dark ridge. The different lighting in the landcsapes of the foreground and the background is very intriguing, the heavy clouds are dramatic and the poster adds a surreal touch to the composition. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Your photo captures nicely the sky drama, combination rainbow and storm cloud. The glow of colors is truly wonderful creation of Mother Nature and indeed very significant and something to cheer up. The well lit distance background contrasts very nicely with the ominous dark foreground and the obviously heavy cloud in the upper part of the frame. I feel this is a rare capture of nature beauty and congrats to your keen eyes, TFS.

This rainbow creates a very special effect as it seems to to drop directly from the black cloud and light this village. Very good shot of a moment that I presume was of short duration.
