Yesterday, at about noon, there were wave clouds in the sky. I was admiring these when the sun moved over slowly behind one. Then the most marvellous series of colours appeared close around the sun.
The iridescent colours were very bright, normally too bright to look at and so are rarely noticed. However, by decreasing the camera’s exposure, I was able to capture a bit of it.
All I can say – Wow
Oh My! Looks like what the new space telescope is seeing.
With great appreciation for how you see the magnificence of the ordinary in so many ways!
In the words of the (in)famous BC Premier, Bill Vander Zalm, FANTASTIC!
As for me, I’m speechless… Thank you.
OMG! Oh my GOLLY !!! Beautiful…inspiring!
Did you really see that Kelly green color? So unexpected – that’s a gorgeous photo!
PS — just got to Nelson today on a vacation week with friends, will keep our eyes on the skies.
Quite a catch!
Is it enhanced or what came through the lens?
Could we have seen Boreal chickadees at Gyro Park last week? A small mob of 4-5 of them sounded off as we walked by a patch of tall brush on the north side of the park.
