« Rings On Her Fingers | Main | Speaking of Rainbows.... »




You know that the colour is all dependent on the rain and sun direction. I've seen a rainbow like this near ours but then it sudenly got BRIGHT and shone and then faded out. like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/munkt0n/1141213013/
which is from my mans flickr collection. I do love the way you extract colours from stuff. It is inspriring.


Yes, I'm a bit surprised at the "dullness" of the colors - but I am guessing that part of the perceived brilliance of a rainbow is the splash of color in an otherwise gray sky, and also the fact that they are in fact light-reflections, rather than being flat color on paper.

Interesting point about the mind interpreting brightness that may not be there. This is my excuse for thinking I am taking fabulous pictures only to find a finger or toe in front of the camera, and the subject matter looking completely different than I saw it without the camera between us. I think you have to have a certain detachment from your own vision to take good pictures. Just like you do, Ruth!

I'm fascinated by the way you've explored the colours, and very interesting what's going on here optically - the very saturated version is a beautiful palette


Interesting. I've never really compared rainbows in different places. I'll have to see what rainbow pictures I might have somewhere and where they are from.


I always absolutely love when you take pictures and deconstruct them into basic color themes like this. Love it.


Love this post.


Beautiful post. You can't go wrong when you look to nature for colour inspiration. :)
