Colors of the Imagination


This past weekend afternoon as we were ducking from one store into another trying not to get wet from the rain, we were treated to this beautiful rainbow. The scene was captured quickly with my cell phone. Rainbows may be formed by the refraction of the visible spectrum through the drops of rain, but I like its Kannada (my mother tongue) name : Kaamana billu - Cupid's Bow, which conjures up mysterious romantic plot that just may be happening right around the bend any minute now :)

Lovely picture. Rainbows always intrigue me. I remember the 'pot of gold' adage with the rainbow that they taught us in school; thanks for sharing this new viewpoint prevalent in Kannada.

This rainbow was created not by sunlight, but by moonlight! :) Look at the stars in the sky and you'll realize that fact.
