Woow, what a great moment have you captured here... And you didn't even know?? You were there on the perfect moment!!!
Thanks for the info in your note!
I love this shot, the colours, the brigthness, the sharpness. I would set the horizon on 1/3...but still love this shot!

A very pretty landscape pepperred with the beautiful clouds and sky. Good Note. I enjoyed reading about circumhorizontal arc. I like your pp work here as it appears tempered and the resulting image appear natural. TFS.

Hello, Alan -
I did not get the full effect of the image until I opened the thumbnail and saw the halo more clearly. Very nicely captured with clarity and warm colors throughout. The meadow and sky compliment each other with their opposing types of beauty. I also like the layered effect of dividing the image perfecly in half between earth and sky, accentuated with the added borders at the top and bottom (I usually don't go for added borders, but these ones actually contribute something substantive to the visual effect). Very nice work!

WHAT a wonderful moment you've captured. I think I would have taken 100 shots of this. Really well composed. The color contrast between sky/flowers and clouds is magnificant. All with a complimentary frame. Congrats on this ! TFS Julie

We had one like it a few weeks ago but could not find a spot to capture it a nice way. It is nice to see that you were able to use this with one of those great British flower beds. The simplicity of the composition suits this photo well since it is more about the phenomenon than the rest of the photo. If I do have to find a nit to pick, its the slightly warm while balance used. I feel that a slightly cooler one would bring out the white clouds better and would give the field such a yellow color cast.

Great pic! Its good that you also managed to get something interesting in the photo as well as the arc!
I have got a few shots myself that i took of one last year in June and this year at the start of July, and 3 years ago i managed to capture one by moonlight too! The moonlight one was the first i had ever seen, and there were 2 halos around the moon, one was your standard type, the second was off center and slightly warped, and the thrird was near the down low, just above the horizon which was the Circumhorizontal arc, it was an amazing sight! I will post them one day.
It is true that they are pretty rare, although further the south you go in the UK the better it is, and down here on the IOW you are probably at your highest risk of seeing one :-)

Alan: Damn! One helluva explanation of this photograph. Although the left part of my brain could only retain half of the explanatory note, the right side of my brain really appreciated the photograph for all it's beauty and unique tones. Great catch by all stretches of the imagination.
