The story behind the image

I had an assignment at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and during a pause I explored the surroundings of the fairgrounds. In the center sits the Font Màgica (Magic Fountain) and indeed magic was happening: The water splashed and resembled mountains, and a rainbow had formed over the spraying water. I think the rainbow is a fantastic contrast to the restricted color set of blue and white. Beautiful.
