183/365 Refracted light patterns

Light can behave in some beautiful ways.

I made this photo by shining a flashlight through a purple glass crystal. I laid the flashlight flat on the ground, clamped the crystal to hold it upright, and shone the light through onto two light green sheets of paper.

You can see the purple tint from the light, and I love the spectrum of refracted light through the prism.

I enjoy trying new ways to play with light that stretch beyond the obvious and often-taught methods.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/60s, f/2.8 at ISO 1250 lit with a flashlight
