Water droplets in the sky reflect, refract and disperse light which in turn causes a rainbow. That is the prosaic explanation for the aspect of meteorology that is a rainbow. Sadly, it is not a bridge to a fairytale kingdom or the traces of flying mythical horses! Here is a collection of pictures of rainbows that show off their magical qualities.

"Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray." Lord Byron
