    Silver Linings

    Once again, I am totally blown away by all the talent to be found here. While everyone else seems to have romantic beach scenes, this one was taken one evening after a very long day of move-in (I'm a residence hall director). I was pooped and had to grocery shop before getting to relax. This shot was taken from the parking lot of our super WalMart!


    Silver Linings

    I spent several minutes parked in the middle of the back half of the lot just standing against my car shooting away. Amazing how something like this can rejuvenate a person.

    Taken with a Kodak DX7590.

    Cool

    Very nice & atmospheric. Its amaizing what images can ge gained in the most normal of places. It takes a good eye to spot them though. Every picture has a corner & around every corner there's a picture - the fun's finding them. Hmm.... if I can work out how to add a sign off message I might use that.

    yeah one time right while i was pulling into the parking lot at work i noticed a decent size sun halo (looks like a rainbow encircling the sun). i parked a little off to the side and started snapping away. i saw tons of people just walking by and not even noticing what was right above their heads in plain sight! all they had to do was tilt their heads up slightly and they would see it! i also had to make up some excuse why i would be delayed for quite a while before arriving for work
    no lousy throw away part time job was worth that kind of opportunity

    Just goto User CP and signature.

    Easy...

    The problem with living in Arizona is that almost every sunset is a unique photograph. Like I've said the state flag is a sunset on top and a field of blue (for the deep blue skies). A typical sample:

    Sorry to post a none sunset on here but ReF is this what you meant. I took it in Yosemite park at Easter. It was frosty & I assumed it was a result of ice crystals in the air causing some kind of diffraction ring. There were feint rainbow colours in reality but my little olly C40Z could only just capture them. Also tried the signature George thanks.

    that's exactly what causes them and of the two i've seen, they've been on the pale side as well. the weird thing was that the second halo i saw was on a hot day and caused by what looked like cirrus clouds (ice) and a bunch of contrails. it's a good thing i decided to bring the camera along that day, as no one would expect to see something like that in the middle of a hot day.

    Those Sun halos are VERY cool. In the Canadian Prairies, we'd get these things called "Sun Dogs" that are very similar. You'd get a semi-circle on both sides of the sun (often quite far apart) usually in the winter months, when ice crystals are abundant in the air. But I've actually seen one of those here in BC this past summer, it was a strange occurrance, and I REALLY wish I had taken my camera along with me as it was DURING a sun set too!

    Anyways, I took these two pics from my backyard last fall. There was this really odd shaped, tall cloud shooting up into the sky that lit up in a really cool way - it almost looked like it was a flame in the sky. I've added a second pic that's zoomed out a bit more to give some perspective on the size of it.

    Here's a plain ole' cloudless and windy Newport Beach, California sunset.

    Should try to catch one with a pier and some of the big surf we've been having lately.

    Here's with some color filtering and contrast, interesting little bed the sun is burning for itself.
