    Got this when I was in Aceh a couple of weeks back. Its quite amazing the number of rainbows we can see while there. Sometimes, we even get to ssee double rainbows.

    Well, of all the shots I have, I feel this is the best I have.

    It is the rain thing. You need a light drizzle to keep the water in the air to enable the sunlight to be refracted.

    This was taken during and after a drizzle-ly afternoon in Victoria, AU:

    During or shortly after a drizzle or light rain are best. But, it's like everything else, right place right time.

    you don't really go hunting for rainbow....it's pretty much a zen thing.....it comes to you! the magic of rainbows!

    Wow! you guys all are very lucky to capture rainbow while travelling overseas
    I remember only one or twice to see rainbow like that in my childhood days.
    Rainbow can also find near to a waterfall like this one but it is not obvious



    any tips or method that we can capture it properly?
    Cheers,

    Default Not quite a rainbow...

    Took a shot of this phenomenon in late 2003 using a Nikon CoolPix 3500 in auto mode. Unlike the rest of the earlier posts rain was not involved.

    Rainbows are science afterall, so although it happens by nature and chance, we can maximise our chances of seeing it. They are best seen early mornings or late afternoons, and always look for it away from the sun.

    What I hope to catch is a moonbow.....
