Better in my eye than in my camera

    This was really cool in-person. I didn't take the time to check my camera settings, so it didn't record as well as I'd have liked.


    I am calling it a crepuscular rainbow. This is a pic of sun beams (crepuscular rays) streaming through the clouds - into a mist of raindrops. So, this tiny section of the rainbow has spokes.

    A half-hour and 50km later, it faded away, and then shortly after, it's counterpart appeared in the other corner of the sky.

    Sounds cool. Can you host a higher resolution version of it somewhere?

    I could but little point really. I deliberately scaled it down because it's too grainy.

    Ooh! I hadn't even thought of that. Now I really wish I'd gotten a better pic!

    You should do something about that; it sounds as if it would hurt to have that in your eye.

    :biggrin:

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    I caught a good one just yesterday. Still need to get a good camera.
