Why isn’t the sun in the middle of the halo?
The extreme wide-angle lens I used distorted the circular halo.
Marvellous shot, Steven!
A glimpse of what heaven might look like. Beautiful lighting, subtle hues and beguiling cloud formations.
Regardless of the clouds or the sun dog, that is one cracking good picture.
Horizons behind horizons are a favourite of mine.
David, thank you for the kind words. – Steven
Brilliant! Well done!
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.
