circumhorizontal arcs photographed by (click pic) david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandonrios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

Fire rainbow - seen these :)
Sherlock Holmes fans, Watch this series … if you haven’t already. Rip Andrei Panin, you left us a great Watson.
Russian Sherlock Holmes 2013 - I’ve fallen in love all over again. Please watch, you will be enchanted by this version. I’ve come to realise that Conan Doyle’s duo will always be part of my life, from early childhood watching Brett and reading the canon and my own father’s personality, a brilliant curious mind always solving mathematical and obscure problems, probably evoking Holmes for me in daily life as a girl. It truly is amazing, the affection I hold for the stories Conan Doyle created and have only really come to realise recently. They are a part of me. This series made me quite emotional, for example, each time Watson senses Holmes needs it, Watson gives him a boxing lesson, i.e. a right bashing. It’s the unspoken words that have the most power. Thank you for sharing :)
