One of the central ideas about light that I always have trouble wrapping my mind around is the idea that it travels as both particles and waves. It seems the deeper you get into physics the further down the rabbit hole you go.

Totally agree Al, I find my complete layman but curious self over at http://physicsworld.com/ quite often for an interesting read.

This painting is great, I like the way you've represented the spectrum in waves with the refraction :):)

I agree, it is truly wondrous to think about it Al. So many things happening that we cannot begin to understand or even see.:)
Very creative and beautiful Al!:)
