Beautiful Rainbow at Simei

How often in our lifetime could we watch the beauties of the rainbow?

I have seen quite a few rainbows in my sixty years in Singapore and travelled overseas, but this is the first time to have this chance to take a few photos by coincidence and share them with pleasure to enjoy.

This is a natural phenomenon created by God to show us the beautiful things we see and meet by pure Creation.

Not faked, unnaturally, commercially or artificially created by media technology like Photoshop. Those are not the real stuff for us to believe.

To watch the rainbow is a rare experience of beauty and heart of truth.

Few school teachers could show their students during Nature Study to have a look at a rainbow, except for occasional photos taken in magazines or on the Internet for photographers to share.

Whilst walking home at about 7:10 pm today on 8 July, 2010 from Tampines Central to Simei, a young lady passerby pointed to me the beautiful rainbow in full arc sevenfold red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet so distinctly seen to us at the appearance in the sky.

The photos were taken with my Treo 680 thus the reproduction is not as good the quality taken with a better camera. The beauty of the wonderful rainbow in the sky for a fleeting moment, unanticipated or timed. Unlike as sure as the sunrise. Unlike the slogan of a church "If you miss the sun today, God will make you one tomorrow". So there must have hope for the moon, the sun and all things created by God. The sights of the rainbow is a coincidence though.

The "Rainbow Poems and Quotes" at the Internet are here

Another blog about rainbow at "there are many things i wish to say but i am really not good with words " is a beautiful blog to express here .

Come share your beauties of the rainbow and post them to this blog. Thank you.

Lovely pictures and lovely post! I always feel somehow lucky whenever I spot a rainbow because there is never an ugly one. It's always beautiful and a wonderful thing to behold.
Whenever I think of rainbows..2 songs come to mind.
" Somewhere over the Rainbow" by Judy Garland and " The Rainbow Connection" by Kermit the Frog.
Have you heard both the songs on ukulele? Simply magic!
Will play for you when we meet next.

How nice to hear the loving wise words, unk Dicko. The rainbow is just like the smile of every child, the connection somewhere from every heart of their lives.

Beautiful songs from your ukulele for our enjoyment. Share them on YouTube too!

How wonderful for you and your family in Melbourne to watch the rainbows so often as your daughter lives in Australia, YG.

The beautiful rainbow effect and phenomenon is also commonly seen near waterfalls or fountains.

A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere. [Wikipedia]

I've seen a rainbow only once or twice in the past few years. Once, as I was driving along the CTE towards the city. Somehow, I saw more of the rainbow when I was a child. Rainbow looks so awe-inspiring when you see it in front of you.
