The visible spectrum

Rainbow #1
...brought to you courtesy of the axial tilt (and thus sun close to horizon), the Kings Cross garage pulling down their fence, and the fact that we have thick glass doors that act as a prism...
Rainbow #2
...making a rainbow path of spectral colours every afternoon... ;)

Thanks Renemy for the camera loan... ;)

What a great shot...that spectrum effect can be hard to capture with photography. If you really like the colors, you can have them in your home - have a look at www.spectrasundial.com

Oh thanks very much! I think we are spoiled by the dark hall and dazzling low sun though... ;)

How perfectly apt for a science publication. Smiles.
