I always wish to see the rainbow after the rains, but I stay in Dubai, Middle East and that is a rare sight in a Desert...Rainfall is less here and rainbows extremely rare..I was wondering if anyone has seen rainbows and if they have any pictures.

Hi doreen, I live in a tropical country. Rainy day is available all the time. After the down pour of heavy rain for quite some time. We could see the fascinating rainbow either on the east or west of the sky. Yeah, the colorful arc of a circle in the sky make the natural environment so attractive. We could see the magnificent and charming rainbow in the west more often. Yeah we have more rains after noon. Hopefully you would have chance to visit my country in time to come, so that you could enjoy watching the fascinating rainbow that always available here. Have a nice day and happy posting

Hi lkbooi, Nice to know that you live in Malaysia, I was due to visit there last week but last minute changed plans and went to Nepal instead. Luckily I did see a lot of rainbows but I will definitely visit your Country and enjoy the rain!

Hi doreen, welcome to Malaysia. End of the year is the rainy season here. The rest of the time the town where I live is the place with most rainfall in my country. So it’s popular with the name of “Rain Town” I’m really glad that you have seen lots of rainbows when visiting Nepal. I was told that the wish you made when seeing a rainbow will come to true later Wish you all the best and happy posting!

Wow I never really thought about it, I mean no rainbows in the desert.. It makes sense but I did put one and one together... Yes I have seen several rainbows in my life time.. I have no idea how many I have seen.. On a couple occasions I have seen double or triple rainbows.. Its like the regular rainbow but the colors repeat themselves over and over... unfortunately I do not have any pictures at the moment of the rainbows I have seen... Hopefully someone else can show you a picture or two..

Yes, I have seen several rainbows. I don't really have any photographs of a rainbow, but I can definitely say that I've seen one or two. It's really beautiful to see, in my opinion. I love to see nature, rainbows, and many natural things like that.

If you ever get the chance, you should visit Colorado in the US. We get really weird weather here where it's raining over half the city, but the other half of the sky is sunny, and the combination produces some great rainbows. I've seen at least 3 rainbows in the past 2 weeks, and my husband has seen more on his way to and from work. I uploaded a picture of one that I saw a couple weeks ago. It's called "A Rainbow" in the "life" interest section.

I love rainbows. they always make me think of my dad - we used to go out walking a lot and would stop to enjoy a rainbow if it appeared. Now, if I am feeling a bit low and I see one, I think of it as a sign of hope - how can things be that bad if we have such beautiful sights. I know it may sound silly to others but, somehow, I feel like my dad is letting me know that everything will be ok.

It's so sweet of you to think that way...a sign of hope. I too, always felt rainbows which are so filled with colors have something to do with our lives.

How many of you have seen the rainbow? Hello friend, I want you to know that I have seen the rainbow and it is truly one of God's most rarest sights. I can remember when my son was still young, the first time that he saw a rainbow he was truly amazed. We have a video here of him looking at the rainbow but we didn't happen to take any pictures. So sorry that you've not seen one before. But I would like to encourage you to keep looking, also if you say a prayer and ask God to allow you to see what a rainbow looks like, I"m almost certain that he will accommodate you. Just believe and think that you are the apple of God's eye and no good thing will he withhold from those that walk uprightly. Hope you get to see it soon. Take care and have a great day. Please add me as a friend if you don't mind. Also I would like to knwo, what is it like living in Dubai?

I visiting Bangkok soon, hopefully, I'll see some rain there..Its quiet hot and humid in dubai right now but it is a city i really like, not only because I'm born here but also because dubai is full of cosmoplitan crowds and that gives the city its mix an match flavor..Incase you are planning to visit, there's lot of sun and sand sports!

How many of you have seen the rainbow? Hello sonz_doreen Dubai seems like a very interesting place. I supposed it would be similar to NYC but only better. From what I gather it's a new place which was man-made. I would still have to do a lot more research on it before I ever considered traveling there. I don't do very much traveling as it is due to lack of funds. Hopefully that might be changing in changing in the future though. One of my old social network friends from yuwie was telling me about dubai. She moved on to another site so I'm not sure whatever became of her. Anyhow I do hope that you will get to see the rainbow when you go to bangkok. Take care and have a lovely safe trip. Happy mylot!
