Rainbow & mount
- Author Donald Ahrens in his text Meteorology Today describes a rainbow as "one of the most spectacular light shows observed on earth". Indeed the traditional rainbow is sunlight spread out into its spectrum of colors and diverted to the eye of the observer by water droplets. The "bow" part of the word describes the fact that the rainbow is a group of nearly circular arcs of color all having a common center

Salam Mohamad Ali,
nice shot of the rainbow. It is hard to get it beautifully done, but you did it. the mountains view make it more interesting and exciting.
Excellent composition of earth and sky.


Beautiful rainbow shot Mohamad, well composed.
I like the light & shadow that falls across the hills below, adding a good sense depth..
Well done,

Hi Mohamad,
a very nice landscape shot with the rainbow, even if it's
weak it's well seen, it's not easy to catch one.
the picture is well exposed and with fine details.
Well done.

Olá Mohammad

Uma bela foto desta linda paisagem com direito à arco-íris e um céu muito bonito.
Lindas cores também, parabéns!

merhaba Muhammed Ali,
I visited your beautiful country in 2006 and went to many places during scientific excursions, especially Zenjan. Some parts green, some others steppic areas. but we found and observed many great creatures in such a place, even in desert. This is great lanscape shot from hills in Tehran, with rainbow. Great composition. POV and frame also very nice. Thanks for sharing and your visits to my posts, best wishes from Turkiye

Hello Mohamad,
Very nice landscape, well composed to show off the rainbow to its best advantage.

Salam Mohamad Ali.

Neat capture with the rainbow atop the hills. Very good light and shadow management with the rainbow making up the colors against the baron hills.


Hello Mohamad! Wonderful rainbow and excellent mountains. Nice colours. Very nice lightness. Good shot. Good luck!

Hi Banaei,

Amazing photo of a rainbow against the mountains, black clouds and the shadow of clouds on the mountains. Thanks for sharing.
