Watery Skies

The skies were blue on Christmas Day.
This is a view through the skylight at the Portsea Hotel.
The skylight is covered with a running water feature.
That is why the cloud shapes look as if they are melting and why there are shadowy etchings on the walls.
The walls seem to be alive with dancing light and shadow!

You can just see a little of the rippling, running water at the top of the third glass panel from the left.

Hi there - just like the Water Wall at the Gallery - except people can’t put their hands in the water!

Have a good New Year.
