For a minute, I thought the photo is taken somewhere from a prominent photographer's website...

Haha thanks! Actually "Somewhere over the rainbow" is a reference to the famous song "over the rainbow". To quote Wikipedia:

"The song's plaintive melody and simple lyrics depict a pre-adolescent girl's desire to escape from the "hopeless jumble" of this world, from the sadness of raindrops to the bright new world "over the rainbow." It expresses the childlike faith that a door will magically open to a place where "troubles melt like lemon-drops"."

It is not a perfect fit, but I kind of thought it matches the overall mood displayed by her expression, hence the title. :P

By the way it's a very nice song. I liked Eva Cassidy's version. :)
