Photos of rainbows above Ljubljana and its surrounding areas are often posted on Instagram, delighting visitors and earning many likes. What makes rainbows so magical is their unpredictable nature, lasting for just a few fleeting minutes or seconds, and the photographer has to ready to quickly capture it. But the joy evoked by their colours and energy is all the greater.
Some rainbows photographed over Ljubljana are complete, some are partial, some are single, others are double, and they are photographed in different parts of the city. Combined with various buildings and ambiances in the city, they form interesting visual images, earning a post on our blog. We would like to thank all photographers who allowed us to post their photos of rainbows. We have not been able to contact some of them, and we invite them to contact us. And we would like to invite you to visit their Instagram profiles, where you will find many interesting and excellent photos. Links to their profiles are under the photos.
