I don't know which is more miraculous; that these things happen, or that we're here to witness and share them.

Wonderful shots!


Some artist and photographer friends of mine where talking about the same thing, but we wondered what is out there that no one sees!

Very nice collection of optical rarities!

I viewed this from I81 southbound between Stephens City and Middletown and also saw a left hand sundog


That's neat to know. I had no idea how far people would be able to see this, but now I know Madison, Charlottesville, and you.

I viewed this from I81 southbound between Stephens City and Middletown and also saw a left hand sundog. But I could not see the halo or circumzenithal arcs.

About retiredffwx

A life-time love of nature and living near the Shenandoah National Park has allowed me the freedom to pick and choose what I want to shoot. Having the freedom to do so without crowds allows me to wait for the image without interference. It doesn't get much better...
