Figured I'd start a thread dedicated to pictures of nature, weather, the earth, etc.
 
Here are some pics of the Aurora Borealis I found:

Just saw this for the first time the other day. A former softball teammate who I also coached (our daughters) with is the driver for this chase team. Pretty nicely broken down.

 

Had no idea he was a weather geek until he started posting some stuff on FB last summer!

 

Enjoy.

These are just gorgeous. Some people thought it was a sign from heaven. In a way, it was,-a nice one.

The colorful luminescence is caused by the sun's light being refracted by water droplets and ice crystals in the cloud, said, Eladio Solano, a meteorologist with Costa Rica's National Meteorological Institute, according to Costa Rica media outlet Teletica News.

It is very uncommon to see double rainbow after or during a rain fall. It is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky.

Waterfalls are also considered one of the most attractive sites in the world. Tourists also enjoy watching the green mountains and waterfalls.

A primordial image of the 2018 eruption of Kiluea Volcano.

There are 28 amazing and beautiful images. You have to take a bit of time and check them out.

https://www.dailymai...s-revealed.html

The stunning shots have been revealed as the winners of an international panoramic photography contest.

Both professional and amateur photographers were invited to enter their best landscape shots for the Epson International Pano Awards 2018 in a bid to win more than $50,000 (£38,000) in cash.

I take pictures as a hobby. Tonight I took this picture of the city lights shining off the low clouds. Don't get this effect too often even around here.

Every February, when weather conditions allow, Horsetail Fall on the eastern side of El Capitan appears to turn into a waterfall of fire or molten lava. With enough rainfall and clear skies, the lava-like effect occurs at sunset over a two-week stretch when the angle of the setting sun hits it just right.

Valentin Zhiganov, 44, shot the incredible pictures of the rare optical illusion near his home city of Apatity in Murmansk Oblast, Russia in temperatures of minus 30 degree Celsius. His images show the aurora – also known as ‘light pillars’ – mixing with the lights of the city while the local power plant looms in the background.

I took this photos a few weeks ago looking south from SW Ft. Worth area.
I was so excited to see a double rainbow I stood in the mist and grabbed a dozen photos.

This was a full ground to ground arch double rainbow. My camera could catch it all it was so close
Many yrs ago my uncle stood inside a rainbow. He said he felt transported to another reality.
I know understand how early man must have marveled at these miracles from the gods.

Sorry for the sideways post. I can't seem to right it.
