Zadar’s Greeting to the Sun

Photo of the Day

The shot from a while ago of the folks relaxing next to the sea organ in Zadar is complimented by this one of the Greeting to the Sun, an art project/giant outdoor disco floor created by architect Nikola Basic. This clever circle of solar panels captures the brilliant light of Zadar’s endlessly sunny days and stores the energy until night when it can release it in the form of an impressive, underfoot, ever-changing rainbow of lights. The panels also accumulate enough energy during the day to help power the lights along the boardwalk (no disco lights there though).

I had to wait a while for the crowds of curious onlookers to step off the circle before I could get this shot, but I could have stayed there for ages just being hypnotised…
