Group Description

IF YOU DON'T SEE IT WITH YOUR UNAIDED EYES...................it is not there

Atmospheric optics, other than rainbows, clouds, run of the mill sunsets or sunrises.

AS I HAVE A GROUP SPECIFICALLY FOR RAINBOWS, NO RAINBOWS ARE ACCEPTED ON THIS GROUP, SORRY

www.flickr.com/groups/rainbows/

Lens flare is not welcome on this group, so if you add lens flare pix here they will be removed!
EXAMPLE OF LENS FLARE
Good Morning Spring.......yep there was a cloud right there, that is why I have a fluffy sun

Also PLEASE, take time to determine if what you have is an atmospheric optic, or lens flare/camera artifact. Unfortunately sometimes our cameras see things that are not there. Such as the corona like shape in this foto.

Distortion

Not a corona..................a camera aftifact.

Below is also a camera artifact..................these are NO NOs

Group Rules

NO CAMERA ARTIFACTS................pillars, orbs etc. IF YOU DON'T SEE IT WITH YOUR OWN UNAIDED EYES..........it isn't there. Now I know there are times you have a true atmospheric optic, and those orbs etc have also crept in. These are acceptable.
Digital cameras are not the only cameras quilty of this happening.

OK guys and gals!! This site is for atmospheric optics, other than rainbows, clouds and run of the mill sunsets!!!

Please if you possibly can tag your foto with the optic you think it has. TAG IT!!!!

Clouds, run of the mill sunrise/sunset fotos are not what I am looking for ON THIS GROUP.
