30 Majestic Rainbow Photographs to Inspire You with Hope

Rainbow photography is a challenging subject for photographers, simply because of the relative rarity of rainbows and the requirement for proper lighting, which makes it difficult for photographers to capture rainbows when they come around.  Rainbows are often a sign of hope, and are mentioned in a variety of historical and religious texts, and have had a large impact on culture, mythology, art and literature.  Scientifically, however, rainbows occur when light is refracted when entering a raindrop, reflected off the back of the raindrop, and then refracted again when exiting the drop, resulting in white light being split into its spectrum of colors.

This post showcases 30 inspirational and majestic rainbow photographs that will leave you hopeful and inspired, and remind you that sometimes after the darkest rainstorms, beauty can be seen on the horizon.

Enjoy the photographs!
