my indulgence

This is my on-the-spur-of-the-moment impulsive indulgence. It is a bench made out of wooden railway sleepers - rock solid and a super heavyweight. This is a family heirloom that I am passing down ... I hope the generations to come will love it as I do.

Icebows are similar to rainbows but are formed by refraction of sunlight through cloud suspended ice crystals as opposed to raindrops or other liquid water suspended in the air. The absence of the "rainbow" colours is because the diffraction is through a specific face of the hexagonal ice crystal, which only gives rise to one color.
