Photos: A Glorious Rainbow Enlightening Kuala Lumpur


These are the photos of the beautiful rainbow that I snapped the other day… enjoy 😀 (please click on the photos for a larger view at them).

The beautiful rainbow

Do you remember when I told you that the second rainbow was no longer visible when I took out the camera? I was actually wrong! Observe the photo below. It actually has another very faint rainbow above it.

Can you see the second rainbow?

If you cannot find it, have no fear! I’ve edited the photo a little to allow you to see the second rainbow. I had increased the contrast of this photo below by 40% and decrease the brightness by 30%. Look at the photo below.

Can you see the second rainbow now?

I did not realise that the second rainbow was caught on this photograph until just now when I wanted to add it to my blog. Here are  two more photos of the rainbow for you to enjoy.

The second rainbow is also visible on this photo only that it is much, much fainter.

The last photo that I snapped. Even the bright rainbow is fading. I do not think that the other rainbow is still visible on this one though.

A Glorious Rainbow Enlightening Kuala Lumpur


My sisters came running from upstairs yelling, “Rainbow! Rainbow!“. My brother and I excitedly rushed with them out of the front door searching for a rainbow but we found nothing. Actually our father just called to tell us about the rainbow. Thinking that we might get a better view from our bedroom windows, we climbed upstairs but again no rainbow can be seen.

Not willing to give up, we ran past the kitchen (where my mother was anxiously screaming with the fear of us getting burnt) and went straight outside. This time, we’ve been rewarded with not one but two rainbows! One of them is unusually bright that we momentarily gaped in awe.

Hunting for a camera, again we ran past mum since the kitchen is the only entrance to the backyard. Unable to find dad’s new camera (Olympus FE4030), I grabbed dad’s Sony handycam and made my way outside. The second rainbow had now vanished from sight but the first is still amazingly bright. I snapped quite a number of photos and a will show them in my later post

Later, we found out that dad’s Olympus camera was actually with him -click here to view dad’s photos using his Olympus-It was in fact a perfect semi-circle rainbow; like the ones we’ve seen at the Niagara Falls.
