Title Circle of Fire
Description This is an image of a rare occurrence, a rainbow around the sun! Due to the cold weather here in New York (for mid-May!), ice crystals in the atmosphere created this wonderful phenomenon. The trick was to bring some color into the image from a pale sky and accentuate the colors of the rainbow. This is NOT a composite image, but a single shot. Saturation and curves were adjusted to achieve the desired result. The trees were included to give a sense of scale and perspective. This was shot mid-day. The overlaying clouds were a bonus for the composition!
