Photo ID 19 – Yvette Mattern – olympic Global Rainbow – Whitley bay, a photo by mattmuir.co.uk on Flickr.
Over the last few nights the skies over North tyneside have been lit up by Artist Yvette Mattern’s ‘Global Rainbow’ art installation.
Featuring 7 high powered lasers, 1 for each colour of the rainbow the light beams stretch from St Mary’s Lighthouse, across the bay to the old Spanish City building and can still be seen some 30 odd miles away in Teeside towns such Stockton and Peterlee!
My girlfriend and I joined the hoards of photographers to capture this unique photo opportunity and generally have a bit of fun trying out different exposures and effects.
Tonight (sunday) is the last night the Global Rainbow will be visible over Tyneside as it moves on to Preston in Lancashire next week and finally Northern Ireland in time to celebrate St Patrick’s day.
