From Wikipedia : "The Belt of Venus or Venus's Girdle is the Victorian-era name for an atmospheric phenomenon seen at sunrise and sunset. Shortly after sunset or shortly before sunrise, the observer is, or is very nearly, surrounded by a pinkish glow (or anti-twilight arch) that extends roughly 10%u201320 above the horizon. Often, the glow is separated from the horizon by a dark layer, the Earth's shadow or "dark segment". The Arch's light rose (pink) color is due to backscattering of reddened light from the rising or setting Sun. A very similar effect can be seen during a total solar eclipse."

I had not heard that one Cecile - Can't say that "Venus's Girdle" is more romantic than the "Pink Line" but what ever it's called - it sure us purdy! I like it in your photo "Afterglow"

About CecileWNC

CecileWNC

Thank you to all of you for your kind comments, I appreciate them, always!At 16, I bought a Praktica Super TL 2. Since then and for the last 30+ years, I have not stopped taking pictures. I am playing now with a Nikon D-7000 and loving it! I suspect that if you were to give a digital camera to a depressed person and let them free to roam in nature, their well being would greatly improve. I am in a constant state of wonder (well OK ... almost constant). I am an fiber artist and dabble in oils but am in love digital photography. Colors and emotions are what I try to translate in my pictures.Thank you to all of you WunderPhotographers for bringing more beauty into my life!Whiterain, another photographer on this site, is my very much loved teenage son.Create your own visitor map!free counterWAU_map('y7vx39loepmr', 420, 210, 'night', 'star-brown') WAU_classic('zhz1gz2874yy')
