Sunset perfection! This might have given rise to the elusive Green Flash. Did it occur?
Sadly, no flash this time.
Thanks kindly for sharing this rarity with us.
The Green Flash is certainly a rare spectacle. I have seen this only two or three times.
You, and other CAS members, may like to view the following NASA APOD website which give photos and explanations about how this phenomenon occurs.
Apologies for wrongly categorising as a green flash, Les Cowley of Atmopheric Optics has since informed me this is in fact a mock mirage, produced by multiple temperature inversion layers.
Ayers Rock (mount Uluru) gives rise to remarkable cloud formations.

Beautiful shot with the vivid red colors of Ayers Rock.
Peerless and wonderful!
Wow. Photo looks like somewhere on another world. Glad to see a photo from Greenland. Keep up the g0od work over there, Steven.
That does it! More than just stunning and would make a wonderful “wallpaper” for computer screen. Thanks for photo.
Beautiful, I like the Kelvin-Helmholtz’s, Steven. But also the sun ghost and diaphragm images as well the colour aberrations on the picture adding value to the picture.
Thank you for the kind words. The lens flare was just a happy accident.
I know, Steven. But normally they decrease the value of the picture. In this case it was the opposite.
A most appealing photo, Steven. A quiet symphony of muted greys and whites which give a lovely sense of calm to the overall scene.
I like the careful inclusion of the boat in the bottom far right which gives scale to the overall view. I also like the fact you have carefully kept the horizon dead level. It rankles me a lot when I see an otherwise good photo dreadfully marred by sloping horizons.
Perfect. Lawrence said it all.
Thank you for the kind words. I, too, deplore sloping horizons. BTW, when I took this picture, I had no idea it was asperitas … having never heard the term before.
There’s a ghostly face in the cloud. See it? Very apt on the eve of Halloween.
Yes, I see the face, too, Laurence. Well spotted. This picture was taken hand-held but braced against the ship’s railing. The seas were relatively calm, but the ice cold winds were blowing quite fierce.
Magnificent. Love this one!
