30 Fresh and Colorful Rainbow Background Examples

William Wordsworth, the great English poet once said:

My heart leaps up when I behold

A rainbow in the sky:

So was it when my life began;

So is it now I am a man;

So be it when I shall grow old,

Or let me die!…

I think most of us will agree with Wordsworth here. We may get mature enough to cease to like things like cartoons or chocolates but a beauty of nature like the rainbow fascinates people of all the different ages. We rarely become bored by such things.

Legend has it that when Newton successfully explained the construction and the mechanism behind the rainbow, artists criticized him of devaluing the rainbow and detaching it of all its beauty. Such artists continue to live today and they keep accusing the modern scientists that through their work they are making nature dull and uninteresting. I think such people are wrong. Let us take the example of the rainbow. Any lay man can appreciate the beauty of the rainbow that it is made up of several beautiful colors arranged in a perfect geometrical shape namely the hemisphere or a bow. But the beauty doesn’t ends there. When a scientist looks at it he sees more beauty, the white sunlight being refracted and split into different colors from the water vapor of the atmosphere, then the rays bend and then striking the eye to produce the wonderful sensation of sight. Anyways this debate between art and science should be left for the masters of the trades to settle.

Below I have collected a group of 30 beautiful rainbow images that can be used as a background to your screen.

Well this was originally going to be a rainbow flame as you can sort of see in the middle, but then I got to adding things such as lighting and swirls of light and then some fairies so it became more of a fantasy theme.
