Wow, what a beautiful black and white composition this is! Also your former black and white (Misty Morning) is fantastic. Love it. Thanks Paul for sharing these pictures.
Thank you Hans.
Why this difference in the colour between left and rigth if the sun is just back in the middle of the scene?
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.
When I was a lad the Pacific ocean was west of Peru.
Maybe El Nino or something has changed all that.
Ross, a perfect shot! Great stuff! Very atmospheric – the halo you have captured is wonderful.
Perfect capture, Hans!
Well done, Sir!
Thank you and also thanks to my neighbor who phoned to me to look at the moon, knowing about my intrest in this kind of phenomena. The halo was visible for about half an hour.
Thanks for your reply. Much appreciated.
You may like to know that here in the UK we have an expression, which is:-
“Halo near, rain near
Halo far, rain far”.
This old adage is virtually failsafe.
I sent this adage to several of my CAS members in the USA and elsewhere in the EU, and yes, they all said, “It works!
Indeed it works! The Dutch saying is:
“Kring om de zon,
regen in de ton.”
“circle round the sun,
rain in the barrel”,
but that doesn’t rhyme and also applies to the moon.
Best wishes too.
