Spotting a full rainbow was a great arrival present for new Wellingtonian Jeanne Wissing.

Whena full rainbow appeared over Lyall Bay yesterday, Wissing snapped a picture of it from her backyard in Southgate.

Wissing arrived in Wellington two month ago from South Africa and said she was loving every moment here.

"Seeing such a beautiful rainbow appear below us in a country that has already welcomed us with open arms, friendly faces and wonderful wind (yes, I LOVE the wind) seems like a symbol, a promise. I am HOME."

A rainbow is an optical phenomenon caused by reflection of light in water droplets in the Earth's atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky.
