Color inspiration from Rainbows

As evidenced by cave paintings, humans have been inspired by nature since the dawn of time. While lightning makes for amazing photographs, and japanese prints capture the awe-inspiring power of tidal waves, few of nature's forces are as subtly powerful as the rainbow.

It's hard to imagine a world without the palette rainbows provide us. While 1940s movies are certainly cool to look at, living in one would be dull indeed.

With that in mind, here is a collected assortment of rainbows caught in their understated beauty for your viewing pleasure and inspiration. Enjoy!
