Thanks, as ever, for the sharing. There has been a really pleasing flurry of the nacreous clouds visiting us in the UK.
Alas, where I live in South Gloucestershire, I did not, much to my chagrin, see any of these wonders. Lucky you!
PS. Seen anything of “Nessie” lately?!?
Thanks Laurence. Shame you didn’t see any of it – you’ll just have to move north! I’ve really enjoyed weeing everyone else’s photos of the display, too. No sign of Nessie, but we’re going further north later in the year, so I’ll report back after that trip :)
“Happy Easter” to you – and to all CAS members and the CAS!
I like your photo much. You might like this one of a fascinating photo of Sun & Moon halo – combined, that is.
The caption says it all. Photo comes from NASA’s APOD page:- here is the link:-
Best wishes and enjoy.
Beautiful moody depiction of a once in a lifetime event.
For your enjoyment and wonderment:-
You might like to have sight of this fantastic view of the event – photo comes from NASA’s APOD page
– look for the rare “Bailey’s Beads” around the Sun’s circumference. These are akin to stunning brilliant blue and/or white sparkling diamonds with eye-blinding light. Celestial magic!
I see him. He looks windswept :D
A heavenly shot, Anne, and technically rather difficult to capture the Moon and not lose its details.
I agree with all that Laurence said. This is a beautiful photo, and I have been failing miserably for years at trying to capture a good shot of the moon in clouds. So glad you succeeded, Anne, and appreciate that you shared it with us.
Thanks kindly, Ginnie.
I agree fully with that which you say.
I am an amatuer (very much at that!) astronomer – my big loves are Moons and Planets within our solar system. They exhibit clouds something like we never see here in our hemisphere and from which we can learn so much.
Like you, I share your frustration in photographing our Moon. Fingers crossed – the image you wished for will come to you at some point, I am sure! Don’t give up, ok.
Thanks for taking the time to leave such nice comments, Laurence and Ginnie. I am always happy when a moon shot is successful! The trick is Spot Metering (if you have a camera with different metering options), rather than Multi-point Metering. Keep trying, as it is rewarding when it comes off!
Nice, Catweazle! : )
Very cool & nasty looking Anne!
Let’s keep looking up!
Anne, a really heart warming photo, especially at this time of the year in the UK,more so in your part of the world where the days are so terribly short and the nights so long. That said, winter has its own attractions to show us as in this very nice photo! Thank you for sharing this photo with us. Much appreciated.
Thanks Laurence. Yes, we do get wonderfully intense sunrises on clear, cold mornings up here!
What an original way to photograph a sundog, Anne.
– you have turned it into a piece of abstract art!
Thanks Anthony – it was just begging to be snapped! The colours in the reflection were actually stronger than in the sky.
Anne, a very nice photo indeed, and a good way of looking at a Sundog. You clearly have a seeing and observant eye!
Would you per-chance, have captured the fabled “Loch Ness Monster?!!?
Hi Laurence. Thanks for the kind comment. Unfortunately, Nessie has remained rather elusive to date – think the above is a younger relative…
That’s lovely, Anne – a great way to capture a sundog!
Hi Anne, this picture is like a painting of olden times, so beautiful. Thank you for sharing. It gives peace to the heart.
I will not quote the obvious punchline,
Let’s just say it’s an image worthy of Star Trek!
Hadn’t thought of that, Anthony, but now you mention it…
love the Scottish sunsets
Wonderful… What a peaceful beauty… I love it!
Thanks, Anne-Marie – it was a magical afternoon!
Beautiful “Mother of Pearl” colours here – and over a quite wide expanse of sky. Lovely photo – it must have been a sight to see in reality. Thanks very much, Anne.
Many thanks. Laurence. Yes, it was an amazing couple of minutes.
That’s wild, Anne! Exceptional colour…
Not many know how to pronounce Ecclefechan, Anne! – I think he’s wearing a blindfold of sorts..
This is nice! Thanks : )
Great capture Anne, and pretty fun too! :-)))
Annie, this is so sweet! I love it!
Nice one Anne!
Hilarious (and awesome) :)
ah ah great shot Anne!
:D Great you caught the moment, Anne!
Black and white : )
Lovely storm cloud. Looks soft enough to sleep on. If only it weren’t so wet! Thanks for sharing, Anne.
Fascinating sky, Anne!
Hope it didn’t rain on anyones’s wedding :o)
It actually stayed dry, which was quite a surprise! Thanks for looking, and taking the time to comment.
Lovely movement, Anne!
Ha Ha! Good one, Anne :)
The thumbnail made me think that it was a Crown. Cool shot Anne.
Thanks for looking and commenting!
so very extremely funny!
haahahahahahaha!!! very good!!!
Good subject for a panoramic shot, Anne. Big sky!
Yes, Anthony – had to rush up the road to catch it at this vantage point, as it was changing every second!
That one is in a hurry!
You did well to catch it before it flew away, Anne!
You’re right, Anthony – it didn’t last long!
Great capture, Anne.
What a lovely sunrise, Anne!
How beautiful, Anne. I’d love to have seen that, thanks for the photo :)
Thank you Anne for capturing the magic to share.!
Great shot, Ecclefechan should be proud.
Love the reflection in the water.
Well spotted Anne !!!!
How funny….yes, well spotted….
Is Garfield going tu push Odie down the table?!?
Thanks for your comments!
That is a really lovely shot, Anne. :-)
Thanks Carolyn. I took it just as the sun was coming up – 30 seconds later, the iridescence had gone.
cool!, the fat mans belly looks like a face looking upwards… maybe hes not fat but just has his big headed friend lying in his lap
That's a very lovely image, Anne; beautiful colours and form captured really well.
Kind regards from Wales
Thanks John. It really was an amazing sight, and the colours kept changing as we drove nearer to it. Eventually got soaked under it!
