Light lights up; it makes manifest things we do not see. Until we turn the lights on, we do not see points in all their glory. This image challenge on– REFRACTION— made me quit, ponder the meaning of the word, and investigate it so I can recognize it much better. It was a bit abstract for me and finding appropriate words, images as well as quotes was challenging. So I did some research on its significance as well as effect.

What the heck is refraction?
According to information I gathered online from a course at Vermont State Colleges(vsc), Refraction can be defined as the bending of light as it passes from one medium to an additional with different thickness. Refracted light creates a selection of patterns, reflections as well as refractions. Because I was interested to get more information, I took a look at the vsc training course to learn the numerous means we see the optical impacts of refracted light: Refraction creates adjustments in Sunup, Sunset, Golden, Inferior Mirages, Superior Mirage, Halo, Tangent/Bright Arcs of light, Sunlight Dogs, Rainbows, Dewdrops/Raindrops, Main Rainbow, Secondary Rainbow, Diffraction, Moon Corona, and Iridescence and Magnificence. That understood?

Who recognized that the apparently easy act of bending light might lead to all these ranges of optical results. Ha! I bet you thought you were involving take a look at a number of images. Right? This is why I enjoy the picture challenges; they challenge us to find out more regarding our environments, to come to be acutely aware of things we see and take for provided, and to come to be aware of the one-of-a-kind beauty of things around us that we see and also like. My favorite one from the list were Rainbows which are based on the vsc site: “created via refraction and also representation of light in small rain drops; sun needs to lag you; rain decreases have to lead you; the angle between your line-of-sight and also the sunlight will be 40 ° -42.” Stunning!
