Photographer captures the ‘pot of gold’ at the end of the rainbow falling directly below the Eiffel Tower
A photographer has captured the ‘pot of gold’ at the end of the rainbow – which appears to fall directly below the Eiffel Tower.
Bertrand Kulik, 39, from Paris, France, spent nearly the entire day capturing the magical moments two of the multicoloured arches aligned with the iconic tower.
Following Storm Freya, which hit the area this week, both a double rainbow appeared as well one of the beams concluding directly around the Eiffel Tower’s feet.
The grey-overcast sky was lit-up by the beautiful phenomenon, caused when water droplets are struck by reflected, refracted and dispersed light.
The photographer lives just over two miles away from the Eiffel tower, which stands at 1,063 feet (324m) – the equivalent of an 81-storey building.
Bertrand, a violinist, said: “The pot of gold has to be there, but the real pot of gold has to stay in our minds and doesn’t have to be found.
“It was amazing to see, the light was great, but I had to be fast because rainbows can disperse very quickly.
“It felt great and was exciting to see such a light like that. I like catching rare moments and sometimes nature has given me some great gifts.
“It was a nice day, I was waiting by my window all day to take pictures like that.
“One of my principal subjects in photography is taking pictures of the sky.
“I am a concert Violinist and for me it’s like music – I like playing with colours, matters and light.
“I have a nice view from my Parisian flat and I am often looking to photograph atmospheric phenomena.”
