It always seems to rain in Lancashire but we are known to get a bit of sunshine, when those two elements come together you can be lucky enough to catch a rainbow.
Over the years, our readers have managed to capture these moments when they are out and about in the countryside and in our towns and villages.
We’ve even got a man-made rainbow in the form of the laser-light art installation that graced the Preston Docks as part of the Guild celebrations in 2012.
Why don’t you upload your rainbow photos to the Lancashire Life reader photo gallery?
