The Rainbow

Last Sunday at 4pm, i went to Melbourne city to buy some groceries. It was cold and windy. And it was raining drizzly. Suddenly i saw something beautiful in the sky, a Rainbow. Yes, a Rainbow. So i took the chance to take some photos of the rainbow.
Rainbow appears in the sky when the sun shines onto water droplets of the atmosphere, causing a spectrum of light to present there. Rainbow does not exist in the sky and scientifically it is an optical illusion which depends on the observer's location and the position of the sun. The sun is located behind the person that see the rainbow and the circular arc of the rainbow is in the direction opposite to the sun. And the rain is in the direction of the rainbow.

Below are some quotes that are related to rainbow;-

1. Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty. There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail. -Robert Motherwell
2. The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears. -John Vance Cheney
3. 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
4. "Kadangkala Allah hilangkan sekejap matahari. Kemudian Dia datangkan pula guruh dan kilat. Puas kita menangis, mencari di mana matahari. Rupa-rupanya Allah nak hadiahkan kita pelangi."
