Default Rainbow

It's really long since I saw a good, bright rainbow. This came as some consolation, but I am really waiting for a brilliant one.

Nice catch of the rainbow Raghu.

They come and then they are gone.

Yes, Jim. I have seen them form and disappear in a matter of minutes. You need to have a bright sun preferably low in the sky and moderately dense drizzle or showers for at least a few minutes to get a good rainbow.

An interesting thing I have noted about rainbow is that it is not as far as it seems! I have seen the arch touching the ground a good length in front of buildings/trees some 200-300 ft away, like a transparent film hung in the air.

Unfortunately Murphy's law dictates that when one is lucky enough to beclose to the end of a rainbow, one never has a shovel to dig for the pot of gold.

I agree John, but at the same time, with the ever increasing urban congestion, and the long hours it takes at work and commuting, I feel getting to see a rainbow itself is a treasure! My children don't have the same fascination as I have for even looking for a rainbow when the conditions are right!
