No natural wonder is more magical than a rainbow. Something about sunlight reflecting off water droplets in the sky just fills us with glee. Maybe it's the way the colors melt into one another like sorbet, or maybe it's the faint but ever-present hope that there's a pot of gold at the end of one. Here are some of our favorite bows from around the world.
