22 Degree Halo Perspective

22 Degree Halo Perspective
22 degree Halo Perspective

This 22 Degree Halo Perspective is a really gold colored on in my experience.

I’ve seen them white before like the clouds on the right but the mid-golden hour lighting seemed amazing to me. Click The halo is actually a transmissive rainbow of sorts. Most rainbows are reflective with the sun behind you and the. This 22 degree Halo is between the sun and you.

Sun Halo’s are not uncommon but you have to look at the sun to seen them which can be a bright thing,. Usually you have to squint eyes then block the sun with your hand to resolve them against the glare. The discussion on what a sun halo is caused by would be about 300 words so I’ll leave that for another day…..

The ranch gate here I framed quite formally with a very wide (120 degree) 10mm lens. It’s a precise frame to the Landscape/ 2×3 aspect of this capture. Done in the camera not really in the crop as this is a full sized 2×3 feet image at high resolution.

A tad of Photographic musing:

Priority (working on Manual)

Your lenses will differ but this lens focuses as close as one foot . Use High F-stop as your priority. That’s a deep focal field your seeing. (high f stop numbers mean a deep field of focus for you to use but at the cost of a lot less light going into the camera. Your only able to gather light through the now pin hole in the lens’s aperture). Google f-stop and learn what it means (if your trying to learn how to use your camera. (I buy some lenses based on how close they focus at a minimum. There are ways to shorten focus distances but there are problems with that too lol.

Spanning the Montana/Wyoming border with Montana on the left, this backcountry rainbow was fun the other day.. This little storm got me quite wet. The cameras where a challenge to keep dry for this one. Had to wipe a lot of lenses lol.

Blurred Windmill with Rainbow Twins and Lightning

Blurred Windmill with Rainbow Twins and Lightning

So Taking a photo of a Blurred Windmill during the day with amazingly divergent Rainbow Twins behind, and a totally random lightning strike hits just as you hit the shutter… Priceless lolol. I swear this is not a composite and is an unmolested image. Filed under totally random things that happen if you press the shutter button enough. Technically the lightning photobombed “Sneaky Pete” the windmill who is the champion photobombing windmill of all times. I have no control over his actions 😂 . I certainly didn’t have a lightning trigger on this camera (I own and use 2 of them WHEN I work lightning). I was taking a double rainbow lolol. Flash boom.

Good Morning from the Bliss Dinosaur Ranch
The rainbow off of Lookout Butte the other day was nice to see. When it rains and the sun comes out, I automatically run up the hill to get the rainbow that is almost alway there to greet me.

Red Late Day Rainbow Backing a Windmill

When there is only Red Light Late in the sunset, this resultant Red Rainbow backs up "Sneaky Pete" the windmill. I have no control over his actions. He and his brother "Re Pete" the windmill photobomb my landscapes all the time. I have no control over their actions...😂 Location: Bliss DInosaur Ranch, Wyoming/Montana borderlands.

Rainbow Across the Montana/Wyoming Border

The left leg is definitely in Montana, the right leg no doubt in Wyoming.
I’m pretty sure that’s a rain or hail shaft NOT an anticrepuscular ray. Hard to know but I definitely got rain in my Jeeps window on this one :).

Looking Through the Rainbow

Looking Through the Rainbow

Looking through the rainbow is a difficult thing to do. At several miles out, this left leg of this rainbow was an effective filter for the landscape beyond. It gave me a whole new appreciation of this process .

I’ll be hit or miss on posting the next few days but I’m starting to figure out the software side of this gallery thing… . We are still having some bugs.

Have a great Sunday Night and I’m just happy to be able to post after my first weekend miss in several years.. :).
