Unexpected Rainbows (Part 16) The Copenhagen Edition
When I saw these colourful splashes appearing on the floor of the Metro in Kongens Nytorv (which I always mispronounced as Koenigs, well Kongen does mean King as does Koenig), I was entranced, and started looking about for the door or window that had accidentally acted as a prism.....and found the deliberately placed prisms.
The light wells in the roof of the metro have a series of prisims specifically to catch light and send rainbows cascading down on the metro travellers. How could you not love a city like that!
Left image another rainbow in the stairwell, right image, the spiral of prisms in the light well.
