Your pics: Over the (double) rainbow


THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING really magical about a rainbow – no matter how terribly your day is going, one glimpse of its multicoloured rays will perk you right up.

Even though we all know that there is a scientific reason for how they are formed, perhaps a little part of us wishes they were as magical as they look.

We asked for your rainbow pictures today – after this wonderful pic was sent to us – and here’s what you snapped:
