Skywatch Friday: Rainbow in Dubai

It hardly rains in Dubai, so when we have those unusual downpours, it becomes quite a big deal due to the expected traffic and flooding it brings to some areas in the city. Nevertheless, I've always loved the "after the rain" smell and rainbows you see afterwards (I got to appreciate it even more since we moved to Dubai as it has become a rare sight), and it's a double blessing when you chance upon seeing a beautiful sky like this when the rain stops (good thing my husband always brings his camera with him, he took this great snapshot).

To get a glimpse of fascinating skies around the world, visit Skywatch.

What a beautiful photograph! I love the way the leaves seem to follow the curve of the rainbow.

It's nice to hear someone enjoying rain, too: we get sick of it where I live, because it rains all the time, or seems to. Enjoy your beautiful skies!

I love your desert rainbow. The desert plant in the foreground adds context. The colors are gorgeous.

That is a spectacular photo, one of the most beautiful and unusual I have seen this week on SkyWatch.

A great sky with those upward billowing clouda like a giant smokestack!

Love that photo! The soft colours of the sky, and the bold greens of the trees!
Thanks for sharing!
