I had forgotten about the Blackpool Airshow last Sunday, interesting sky Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Les, shame you missed it, and thank-you for accepting my apology, your'e a true gentleman.
Hi Frank, At first I thought you had discovered a UFO, nice photo and I like the wispy clouds. Frances
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Frances, I thought I had later, but it was a hair on my mirror, shouldn't change lenses on a blowy beach!
I personally like the "energy orbs" you caught here!
Frank L Croston.: A sun dog or sundog (scientific name parhelion, plural parhelia, from Greek parēlion, (παρήλιονwink, παρά(beside) + ήλιος(sun), "beside the sun"; also called a mock sun[citation needed] or a phantom sun[citation needed]) is an atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun.[1]
Sundogs may appear as a colored patch of light to the left or right of the sun, 22° distant and at the same distance above the horizon as the sun, and in ice halos. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious or bright. Sundogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low.
Thanks Elizabeth.
An unusual picture, but no problem with that.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Bill, I don't possess a really 'long' lens for this kind of thing,so I look for other stuff.
cool shot...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Rob, I saw this as the air-show started, and just hoped I could include it in a shot.
Chasing rainbows....
Frank L Croston.: Ohh Mary, wish I'd have thought of that for a title, thanks.
