30+ Wonderful Rainbow Pictures for Inspiration

Rainbows have always been a source of fascination to humans. In fact legends are rich of accounts of rainbows being attributed to supernatural forces. Greek mythology has it that a rainbow is a path made by Iris, the messenger of the gods between Earth and Heaven. Irish mythology on the other hand, has reference to the end of a rainbow as the secret hiding place of a leprechaun’s pot of gold. Meanwhile, the book of Genesis mentions that God put the rainbow in the sky after Noah’s flood as a sign of His promise not to destroy the the earth again with flood.

Indeed, the beauty of rainbows and the fact that is very difficult to explain without the knowledge of the principles physics partly contribute much to the rich legends that we have about rainbows around the world. Right now, when we see a rainbow we are still filled with awe and appreciation, sometimes even lament that it is fleeting, and it dies fast sooner than we want it to be.
