a green flash?
This sunset looks very much like the one I posted last night (probably because it was taken that same night), except the solitary person has moved out of sight. And I moved in order to position the sun behind the sea stack. There’s also one other minor detail that I hadn’t noticed until I started to sort through all the (many) snaps I shot as the sun was going down….
I’ve been hearing about this mythical “green flash” that is supposed to occur at sunset…. it’s a fascinating optical phenomenon that’s explained quite nicely HERE.
I expected this green flash to occur just above the sun as it dipped below the horizon, but there’s a definite spot of green near the midpoint of the flat stretch to the left of the sun. (If you want a closer look, click once to enlarge this shot, then click on the green spot again for a better close up.)
I can’t be sure if this qualifies as a Green Flash…. it’s a bit atypical, but it’s definitely there. It’s certainly gone in this next shot taken a mere 00:18 seconds later.
