Circular Rainbow Above the Clouds

First time in 33 years of flying that I ever saw one. I was on an Angel Flight from OCF (Ocala, Florida) > CCO (Atlanta, Georgia) the day after a young man with cancer passed away. He was also an Angel Flight patient that I had flown for 4 years. I take it as a sign from Chris…that he is at peace and everything will be all right. Photo taken at 8,000’ from my Piper Turbo Arrow.

Sunrise Shadow on the Clouds

Here’s a picture I snapped off our front porch. It shows the shadow cast by the rising Sun on Mt. Jefferson, in the Oregon Cascades on low clouds. Ca. 2015.

The weather to the east of the Cascades is usually clearer than the Willamette Valley where I live. This particular morning, the rising sun created a beautiful red cast on the clouds in the valley. I was delighted by the shadow. This spectacle only lasted about a minute before the angle of the Sun was no longer able to shine under the clouds.
