The Rainbow Sea

Have you ever looked at rainbows in the sky and wondered where they come from? Well if you follow me today I’ll show you. I’ll take you to the edge of the rainbow sea, where the colours form and merge beneath the cloud teased Coulin. In this space, where peat soaked fresh water pours from heather clad mountains into the ebb and flow of the salty sandy golden bay, every colour ever dreamed swirls before our eyes. Layers of colour within one body of water, held in the cupped palm of a beautiful Skye bay. When conditions are right, and there are just enough dreams in the air, the colours begin to lift into the air. The reach higher and higher towards the sun, forming an elegant shimmering arch. And along this arched bridge the Gods can move, sending granted wishes earthwards on butterfly wings of the dead. It’s pure magic, stirred as only nature know how, but don’t tell everyone…..let’s keep the rainbow sea a secret, or everyone will be after its gold.

For my fact lovers, this was taken in Ashaig Bay on a late cloud infused afternoon. The light slipping through the clouds created the stunning colours in the shallow waters where fresh water the colour of strong tea swirled into the sea….

    What fabulous photos. I love the idea that rainbows are birthed in the sea. Down here we see so many rainbows over the sea I can believe you are really on to something here, ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ahhhh, your Pot of Gold is hiding right there in your sea! Your land and sea definitely provide an abundance of color. I really should Google a map of Scotland so I can find these amazing areas. You truly should provide your photos for travel magazines. Of course if you did that, THEN your country would be flooded with tourists. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you, as always for sharing such beauty.

    • You spotted the pot of gold Gwynn!! Surely you get a prize for that ๐Ÿ™‚ So….to help you picture where this is…have an image of Scotland in your mind, and now look at the west coast….quite high up. There you’ll see the Isle of Skye, and just across the bridge from the mainland is this beautiful shallow bay ๐Ÿ™‚ Its always such a joy to read your feedback on my posts.
