A CIRCUMZENITHAL...



The story - I was walking through the Hospital Grounds this afternoon, when I looked up at the sky, There was this beautiful curved feathered cloud, and at the end was this Upside Down Rainbow, my mobile was in my locker so ran into the lodge and rung DW and this is what she caught -----( I need to buy a mobile with a good mp camera to it)......



A RARE VISION INDEED. (This photo has NOT been turned upside down)










Skywatch and My World go hand in hand.

You mena you have some COLD shots for us this week, and I have to wait another week to see what happens. Is anyone else finding the sky watch site not allowing us to link yet, and I have 1439 hours.

Here you have outdone yourself - I think I'll go for the first one. It reminds me of something...

Darla said...

Good eye, very creative!!

archiearchive said...

I saw one a couple of years ago. No camera, of course. No one believed me and I was beginning to doubt the memory. Thank you for showing this one :)

Hi Imac, there was an article in the paper, Telegraph, last autumn about reverse rainbows, showing one and the write up.
Fantastic I say.
I love your pictures and the last one reminds me of a row of dolphins in the sea.
Thanks for sharing.

Ida said...

Great series.
Very nice reflections.
And for the ice views, they are beautiful! :)

Dewdrop said...

WOW! I have never! Thanks so much for sharing that. I had never even heard of it.

Love your reflection and ice shots. Stay warm!

Torsdag said...

Wonderful series telling a winterstory, first and last are my favourites.

Louise said...

Worthy pictures to upset another post! I especially love #'s 2, 4 and 5. All are quite cool.

Quiet Paths said...

Whoa, you always play with one's perception of the world; love coming here to see what you've got to show us. Very fun and wonderful shots.

Tarolino said...

Absolutely smashing series. Love the ice formations but the very last shot is truly amazing. There is so much going on in that shot. The mirror reflection is great. I too once shot a sunset through my car mirror.

Carver said...

Those are all great shots. The reflection is so beautiful and the last one with the rainbow almost looks like light through a prism.

Reader Wil said...

Imac, this is very clever! All your photos are spectacular but the last one is the most beautiful for me. And the upside down rainbow is a real never seen, or at least a rare phenomenon. At first I thought it was a trick and the photo was turned upside down, but when I read the article I understood a little bit how it happened.

John said...

Great pictures as always, imac!

Rune said...

Cool concepts! I especially like the ice shots. Neat idea.

WOW!!! No wonder you interrupted the news with that flash! That's a first for me too. Thanks.

The upside down rainbow is wild! I had no idea such a thing could occur. Love the reflection shots and the ice pics, too.

naturglede said...

That was beautiful photoes. Have a nice weekend!

SandyCarlson said...

These are delightful. All that beauty in the ordinary. I love the way the clouds seem to emerge from the snow on the car. That one was a subtle surprise.

I never saw a rainbow do a back flip before. Great stuff!

First time too to see an upside down rainbow! Wow!

Pagan Sphinx said...

What an amazing capture! And lucky, too. This was a real treat.

Happy sky watching!

fishing guy said...

Mac: Those are some neat shots of the sky and love your rainbow.

We hit -11F this morning but it has warmed up to a balmy -4F now.

2sweetnsaxy said...

Great shots! Last one first - I love the rainbow in the clouds. I know there's a name for it but I don't remember it. :-)

Then there is the seeming contradiction of the reflection of the blue sky is something surrounded by ice.

Great captures! :-)

system operator said...

Those ice shots were just fantastic! I can't wait that end of month comes. There's this ice sculpture contest that I'm hoping to be able to see and maybe catch few photos:)

Happy week end and SWF!

Tammie Lee said...

Hello, These are all wonderful and a rainbow in a cloud, magic. Love the ice reflections, very interesting.

onangelwings said...

Nice job with those pictures. Very creative.

Lew said...

The sky with a glaze! Nice work to capture the ones in ice. I have not seen an upside down rainbow, but I have sen a full circle one from an airplane.

Wren said...

Not only had I never seen an upside down one, I'd never heard of one. Awesome - and so are the rest of the photos.

Mary said...

Wow, that is AMAZING!!! Happy SWF. :)

Celeste said...

Great shots, I love the upside down rainbow.

Alan said...

That's not COOL... it's downright COLD! :)

Cool upside down rainbow. Never heard of them before (being near the tropics and all we certainly don't get them here).

Mike said...

Nice ones!

Kit said...

I LOVE that last ice picture!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog last week. :)
