Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction


I have posted this photo before, but when I went to look for it, the photo is not the same version.  I took this picture through a car window in a downpour so heavy I wouldn’t even open the window!

We had decided to go down to visit some friends in Barbrook in Devon for the bank holiday weekend however on Sunday, the skies opened.  We went to Combe Martin for  drive & a bit of an explore.  The rain got heavier and heavier!  We donned our most waterproof wet-gear and briefly went for a walk to see how well it was working.  We soon gave up & with water running down our faces and dripping from our chins, we found the rest of the holidaymakers in Devon sheltering in café’s and joined them for a warming lunch.

On our way home we passed lots of very damp looking seaside shops selling buckets & spades, crab nets, inflatable beach toys & beach mats.  One particular shop had a colourful display of sunflowers and windmills that were being battered by the rain.

I love the way the colours and shapes are distorted by the water, and this picture immediately sprung to mind when I saw this week’s photo challenge; Refraction

My original post with a slightly different version of the photo can be found at Weekly Travel Theme; Bright

    Ah, yes. This is yet another touch—the light is refracted, but the beauty gets through. 🙂
