After a year and a half of including a ‘pic of the week’ at the end of my weekly training summary, I’ve decided to let it stand as a post of its own. I’m also implementing a rule that the Friday Foto needs to have been taken sometime in the last week. No recycling. I am doing this to keep me engaged in building my photography skills, and to make me work harder to get fresh shots. Click here to see my previous Friday Foto posts.
I highlighted some Crespuscular Rays in a post back in August. This shot is special because it shows Anticrepuscular Rays. They are a somewhat rare occurence and I happened to catch them in conjuction with the rising harvest moon. My only regret is how tiny the moon looks (shot @ 24 mm).
The rays are actually parallel and appear to converge at a point on the horizon that is opposite the sun. The convergence is an optical illusion.
