Don’t know whether you have already done this or not, we were talking about our amazing rainbows and how a lot of countries don’t have them anymore. How about showcasing some photos??? ~ Kerry Howlett

We immediately thought this a wonderful suggestion (thanks Kerry!) and called for contributions from our social media community. Here’s a few entries just to get the party started, including Gavin’s image (the one we shared on Facebook with Kerry’s suggestion).

If you have a rainbow photo you’d like to see appear (like magic!) in this article, email the image to Think Tasmania. It does take some time to organise the publishing, but we’ll do our level best to keep the ball rolling.

During one of our Sunday drives from Hobart to the Derwent Valley, we had a little sprinkle of rain on the homeward journey. And we all know what that means… potential for a rainbow!!

Derwent Valley: beautiful full-arc rainbow

The Blue Tier in North East Tasmania is a stunning forest reserve. There’s only one thing you could add to the picturesque scenery to make it even more perfect. Yep, a rainbow! And that’s exactly what Felicity Montgomery from the Weldborough Hotel captured with her camera. Thankfully, she shared her picture with us.

Some of you may be familiar with the Facebook page: Flying in Tasmania with Peter Reed and Gill Quinn. The duo from Skyflyte Flying School based at the Wynyard Aeroclub in north west Tasmania have contributed this beauty, a double rainbow snapped from their property in Sunnyside. What an appropriate place name for this image!

Rainbow Trio from Gary Tew

Gary Tew must’ve had a great deal of trouble choosing which rainbow photos to submit to Think Tasmania. He’s got lots of Tassie photos! He describes himself as being “a passionate Tasmanian” from way back. Gary hosts several online photography groups specifically about Tasmania, including a Facebook page with many scenic Tassie shots. These photos will surely inspire an in-depth browse of Gary’s other images.
