February 11, 2013 – Day 570
The picture below is my response to the Photo Friday challenge of “natural light“.
As this week’s challenge is all about natural light, please allow me to show you what happens when sunlight interacts with droplets of water.
Day 358 – July 14, 2012
The website “Where’s My Backpack?” has the weekly photographic challenge theme of liquid. I have no pictures of standing water, rushing rivers, or majestic falls, but I do have this snap.
At the end of the challenge, the creator of “Where’s My Backpack?” has the following quote by English writer G.K. Chesterton…
And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.
In that colorful vein, I give you the following rainbow spanning the Potomac River…
I’ll come back to my Peruvian locale in my next posts.
Day 199 – February 6, 2012
For only the second time since arriving on the shores of Lima (okay, technically it was the “tarmac of Lima“, but that phrase has absolutely no ring to it), it rained.
Yes, actual droplets of water fell from the sky and landed helter-skelter atop the ground to lend its moisture to the desert upon which the City of Kings sits. The city’s dusty mountains, crazy drivers, and street performers all stood (I imagine) in awe at a true rarity of Nature in Lima.
Even Bert was able to enjoy the “deluge”.
As rare as the rain was, what it also produced may be more of a rarity down here.
While I’m sure rainbows are quite common wherever you are reading this (unless you’re in Peru also), I’m fathoming that this optical phenomenon is not often seen here. So, from our house, this is what we saw…
And with that ROYGBIV vision in mind, I can only wonder at what tomorrow, Day 200 in our Peruvian adventure, will bring.
