Another pic from the same spot  just a few minutes later, and looking farther south.

The sunrise broke through the clouds this morning.  It had all of Skye's favorite colors, so I figured I needed to take a pic and share it.

If there has been, I haven't noticed. But I'll be honest, I've preferred to sit closer to fire this last week then go outside and look at the sky.    Today @ 2pm,  it was -7F, and we were down to -22 last night.

Jeeze, I hate it when it gets below 45! That is the main reason I can't live there, despite it's beauty.

We got people wearing shorts, tank tops, and flip flops at 45* up here, lol.  Steam, you need to come up sometime during the 3 months of summer, and sunshine :)

Tonight the moon was making some kind of illusion maybe, it looked like light clouds were perfectly circling the moon. A few minutes later lower clouds passed by but that ring was still visible behind it.

A couple days ago I was able to get a decent picture of the sunrise before starting work. The entire day the sun rays going through the clouds was unreal, almost like a paintbrush pulling the sun rays. Wish I coulda captured all of it.

You captured a beautiful atmospheric phenomena called an ice halo. It happens when the moon is near full, and the upper atmosphere is moisture laden and freezing. Minute ice crystals form, and they refract the light from the moon. The more moisture there is, the better the halo appears. It can take on rainbow coloration, and even make double rings around the moon.

 

My grandmother had a wives tale, (which aren't all wrong) she always told us, that if you counted the visible stars inside the ring, it would tell you how many day until rain......................

 

It's one of my favorite occurrences to see. The same conditions also create sun halos, and " sundogs", which are two rainbow formations on each side of the sun when it is nearer the horizon.

 

There is more detailed info here:

Anyone here ever buy a refurbished Nikon lens?   B&H had a Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR for 1/3 the price of  a new one.

 

I'm hoping I'll be happy with it as a replacement for my Nikon 55-300 f/4.5-5.6    The Sigma I tried had compatibility issues with my camera body, and I returned it.  So this is my next move, but at this price I'm comfortable with trying it.  My only concern is how much the loss of that 1/3 of a f-stop @300mm is going to affect me.

Thanks WIldE :)

 

This state has really screwed up policies on food stamps, and such.  I think the regional food bank is non profit scam to make the board members wealthy, and that the food they do process through there is not enough, nor is it going to the people that really need it the most.

 

So my wife and I donate regularly to a food share at a local church that doesn't require background checks and mounds of paperwork before they give food to hungry. 

 

No one should have to go to bed hungry.

Ya our food Bank is kinda the same thing here we do need it every month hubby has seen several large checks coming in there but nothing is... I don't want to get into it but if you were an alcoholic you should not work at the beer store so why is food hoarders running our food BANK?
I don't like to complain about these things but there's scammers every where

That is a very beautiful picture to remind us the beauty but also the hard winter times for many people lol the poll for December was closed but I still some how voted for you anyway lol :)

Yea hahh!  My 'new to me' lens arrived yesterday :)  I haven't had a chance to take it outside and play with it yet, but my first impressions are very good.

 

I cant believe how much faster Nikon's AF-P auto focus is over their older AF-S system, and it is so quiet that I can't hear it work at all, though admittedly I have very poor hearing.   I hope to get out this weekend and take some shots with it, I have high hopes for it fitting the bill for my goto wildlife lens.
