This is a wonderful shot Lynette!!
It is rare to get glimpse of sun rays in this shape.
Thank you very much Deeksha. Yes, that sun ray was a very unusual one. So beautiful.
Thank you! 🙂
That’s something different. It’s as if the sun fell over the edge of the flat earth and is shining straight up.
Yes, agreed. It’s certainly something I hadn’t seen before. There may have been some cloud or mist causing this appearance; whatever the cause, it was really gorgeous!
A lucky shot. Good timing.
Yes, it was lucky!
Oh yah! There totally is a vertical sun ray. Looks beautiful. Great capture!
Thank you very much. 🙂 Yes, it was so unusual and beautiful!
The book I have (Rainbows, Halos, and Glories by Robert Greenler) calls these “sun pillars” and says they are a result of reflection from the surfaces of flat-plate crystals of ice aligned in the atmosphere. Nice job noticing and taking the photo.
Thank you very much. I was sure it was caused by ice crystals of some kind. Thank you for the explanation – much appreciated.
Thank you very much. 🙂
