Colorful and powerful!
Like a painter painted with brush at high speed.
I can feel roller coaster's dynamics!

Thanks everyone. Hilda, these are the hoops of one of the giant rollercoasters at the Oktoberfest funfair. This one is the 'Olympia' rollercoaster. There are five hoops which look like the Olympic logo when viewed head on.

Welcome to the site Woodbury.

Great one this, especially the little bit of red which gives the impression of continuity...
