Throughout history, rainbows have been mentioned in legend and mythology, and they have significance in many varied religions and philosophies as well. In addition, they have a strong presence in art, literature and music.
Scientifically, a rainbow is simply a colored arc that appears in the sky when the sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere. While the scientific explanation may be rather basic, the beauty created by the phenomenon is really quite extraordinary.
A rainbow is much like a sunrise or sunset - -as many times as you've seen one, you probably still glance skyward and and take a moment to appreciate each new offering!
Here, recorded by the lens of talented photographer Jake Skoda, is a lovely example on the island of Maui.
