Weekly Photo Challenge – Ephemeral

31 Mar

A year ago, on Mother’s day, one of my daughters gave me a Rainbow maker which works on a tiny solar panel. It sends rainbows dancing all over the room and, when the sun is low, all the way through the house. A few weeks ago I caught a rainbow just as it landed upon a seagull on the rooftop of our beautiful driftwood sculpture made by Jo Perry. It is called Houses and Bicycle. I love how there is a tiny shadow of the seagull on the wall in the rest of the rainbow. The moment was indeed ephemeral!

    Beautiful. They remind me of Dutch houses.

      That’s interesting as they remind us of Whitby in North Yorkshire. 🙂

    I think I may have seen the sculpture before on your blog? It really is an amazing piece of art. I love the shadow in the rainbow, one of those moments that could so easily have been missed! Sharon x

      You have! It just seemed right for the challenge and I thought not everyone would have seen it. 🙂
