Guiding-lights

Fremantle, WA, Australia – guiding-light with sun halo behind

I discovered that I have a number of photos of “guiding-lights”, so decided to put them into one post. Guiding-lights are, of course, more commonly known as lighthouses — but having been reminded that the theme is ‘words ending in light’, I’ve had to get creative with some post titles and dip into the thesaurus for synonyms. 😉

Macquarie Lighthouse, Sydney

Galle fort, Sri Lanka

Hornby lighthouse, Sydney

Byron Bay, NSW, Australia

Beachy Head, England

Posted as part of January Squares, the theme for which is words ending in ‘light’.

Refracted sunlight

“White light entering a prism is bent, or refracted. This separates the light into its constituent wavelengths. Each wavelength of light has a different color based on the angle at which it bends. The colors of white light always emerge through a prism in the same order —- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.” (source) That’s such a dry explanation for what happens when sunlight passes through my faceted glass sphere and splashes onto a wall.

Let there be light! Becky’s back with a new month of squares, and the theme is light.
