This image popped on my screen one day and it wouldn't give me the destination and was wondering where this is, I would love to go here.
6If you encounter this wallpaper again, you can click on the top-right corner ('like what you see?') It should give you an information box which gives the place where the picture is taken.– Toby MakSep 29, 2019 at 6:51
2@TobyMak while this feature is great to have, it's not always available (and I find it's usually when I really want to know that it isn't there!)– MidavaloSep 29, 2019 at 7:16
2It appears to be somewhere in Indonesia according to this link– 3kstcSep 29, 2019 at 8:17
Also you can chose to see more pictures like this (see comment Toby Mak above).– Michel KeijzersSep 29, 2019 at 14:21
Unless the image is grossly distorted, it might be worth a question over at physics.SE why the two rainbows appear to not be concentric– Hagen von EitzenSep 29, 2019 at 15:16
Apparently, it is
Wajag Island, Raja Ampat Islands, Indonesia
Steps to find this bit of information:
- Read Ray's answer and/or 3kstc's comment to find out this picture appears to have been taken somewhere in Indonesia, and taken or published by someone named Giordano Cipriani.
- Image-google for giordano cipriani indonesia double rainbow.
- For me, the first result currently is a taller version of the photo (portrait rather than landscape) that indirectly leads to a gettyimages page of the photo, where the above location is stated.
Looking at Google Maps, the location seems at least plausible (it appears the entirety of Wajag/Waiag/Wayag (?) Island is a maze of smaller lush islands and rocks in the sea). Possibly, what's shown in the photo is a view from coordinates 0.176352, 130.005673 (as measured on Google Maps) roughly towards WNW, but I find it hard to estimate the actual relative distances in the photo, and there are plenty of such small rocks and hills scattered around the main landmasses of Wajag.
If you are using the Chrome browser, right click on the image and it will offer "Search Google for image".
If you do that with this photo, it will find:
- a bunch of rainbow images.
- your question!
- © Giordano Cipriani / SOPA / eStock Photo - Windows ...
That third one is the photo you are interested in.
Unfortunately all it says is "Indonesia", and there is no exif data with the image, but at least it gives you a place to start further research.
P.S. If you ever go there, don't count on the double rainbow having waited for you.
"it gives you a place to start further research" - I did, and your hint proved valuable. Duly upvoted. Sep 29, 2019 at 20:15
Downvoted because Indonesia is not precise enough to actually find this location.– Willeke ♦Sep 29, 2019 at 20:42
I tried Google’s reverse image search at work for the same wish as OP and Google informed me that it was a “Windows Seven screensaver.”– WGroleauSep 29, 2019 at 22:30
