The main purpose of this blog is to share photographs taken during the Soulclipse festival in Antalya (Turkey) at the end March 2006, which coincided with a fabulous total solar eclipse. Please add comments - I'd love to hear from you!

The flood - and the rainbow

Fifteen minutes before the opening ceremony - whirling dervishes and all - the heavens opened. Hailstones as large as marbles fell from the sky with such ferocity that the ground was soon covered inches thick in these large white pellets of ice. To protect the expensive equipment, someone put sheets over the roof of the stage... which turned into a big and costly mistake. The sheets got heavy and brought the entire stage down.

As you will see, I only have one photo of the aftermath: there's no point dwelling on something negative, when there was so much positive with this festival. The stage fell, but it didn't matter. It was back up and running by Thursday evening (three days later) and in the meantime, it meant that the liquid stage was even more kicking - everyone was there instead!

So instead I decided to take more photographs of the wonderful rainbow that followed the flood. I hope you like them!
