A beautiful and colorful small village in Taichung, Taiwan where almost everything in site is painted joyful colors. A sense of wonder and peacefulness is felt as you wander the tiny streets of this modest section of the big city. Bright lively colors call out to your inner child as you find what appears to be an endless seam of creative whimsical imagery. A must-see for any one in Taichung.
From my understanding this tiny village in Taichung, Taiwan was painted by Mr. Huang Yongfu, an original native of Hong Kong, now 90 years old. There are stories/rumors that he painted the village to draw attention to it’s new beauty, thus keeping the old village from being torn down for newer buildings. Another possibility was that he wanted to create something beautiful in his rather drab little retired military village.

"The photo above showing a reddened rainbow was taken from Cortland, New York, about one minute before sunrise and with rain moving in from the west. This bow is much redder than a rainbow seen after sunup or before sundown; it's a dramatic illustration of the preferential scattering of blue light by our atmosphere. The violet, blue, green and yellow colors have been attenuated by the greater path length sunlight takes when the Sun is close to the horizon. A secondary rainbow is barely visible to the upper right." by Ed Groth; Jim Foster

"The photo above shows a jaunty rainbow stretching over a cornfield near Piberbach, Austria. My shadow clearly shows the direction of the antisolar point -- the only direction where rainbows can be observed. Note that the fainter secondary bow is also visible (at left). This bow is caused by two internal reflection of sunlight in raindrops. Since some light is lost with each additional reflection, secondary bows are only 43 percent as bright as the primary bow."
