Flash of Green

Wonderful shot. I lived in and around Destin for a number of years and will never forget the fantastic sunsets over the gulf .

I kept watching for the legendary " flash of green". I do believe , or want to believe, I saw it once or twice!

Please, please, tell me you've seen that green flash just a nano- second after the sun sets.

A believer

Flash of Green

In the movie "Flash of Green'" Ed Harris plays a small-town newspaper reporter along the Florida Gulf, Jimmy is waiting for that “flash of green,” a Gulf mirage said to occur during sunset.

I can't remember whether he sees it in the movie or not. Perhaps the legend started and ended with the movie, one of Harris's first.

My eyes may have been playing tricks with me.
