01.10.12, a photo by colemama on Flickr.

Shadows, contrasts, light distortions, oh my! Have been eye-balling a similar shot for days as the sun comes through a faceted window and shines rays through a carved wooden screen to create this scene on a columned wall. You can see the plaster on the right side of the photo and these patterns alone often create an interesting view, especially given the age of the swirls and indentations. But they can't compete with this bold and surprising, if not permanent, 'painting' on the wall. Unfortunately, it extinguishes quickly as the sun falls below the horizon. Some moments are fairly fleeting - capture them while you can! :) Naples, FL

  1. Interesting how we look forward to the ephemeral in our lives. On sunny days, at a certain point the sun hits the bevel on a mirror near the window and casts a rainbow through my house. I never tire of this magical effect. Perhaps it is the impermanence that makes these events so special.
