Southern Lights

This is another version of what I call Southern Lights. There is actually an atmospheric phenomenon of southern lights (akin to the famous northern lights) in the southern hemisphere. Georgia's Southern Lights are actually the setting sun reflecting off cloud formations. This makes an awesome sight just before sundown.

Beautiful isn't it?

I also like to see the sun rise when there are clouds. Once, while I was visiting my friend in TN, we were driving east at sunrise. It looked like the red sun rise infiltrated the clouds - I can't even begin to explain the sight, but it looked like the clouds were on fire, rolling in waves, and in 3D. I wish I had a camera that morning!

We're fortunate that we live in a beautiful valley. Cloud formations very often catch sunrise/sunset colors...but they're only there for a brief time. It pays to have a camera handy.

BJ, I'm passing along the Butterfly Award to you - it's on my blog. I wasn't sure if you accepted them or not, some don't/or don't display them, but it's there just the same.

I don't live in a valley, but I'm surrounded by trees, so if I want to get a clear view of the moon, or the sun rise/sun set, I have to walk over 2 blocks.
