dec11.jpg - So many pictures to choose from- it's hard to pick one.  For today, I'm posting my 'lucky shot'.  I have been trying for years to capture the so-called 'Green Flash', which happens usually over water and only when you have a clear view of the horizon.  And even then, it does not happen all that often.  Basically, you get a 1-2s green flash right before the sun completely disappears.  There are also different types of green flashes, depending on the atmospheric conditions.  This type is called an 'inferior-mirage flash'.  To capture it, I put my camera on high-speed (6.3 frames per second) and just started firing away in the seconds before the disk completely disappeared.Mods:  None.
