Thank you! This was taken near my hometown, I’m currently living in Chicago so I don’t get to see this view that often. Not sure where you are located, but you can try looking at this website to figure out where the nearest dark

I just look up Giants Ridge and I can confirm that it certainly looks like it could be… But OP is likely in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan based off a previous post.
I understand your point, I really do, but as a photographer and as someone who has visited Yosemite numerous times, this photo bothers me. I’ve seen many glorious sunsets and sunrises, in Yosemite and elsewhere, but none have looked like molten lava in the
The story this photo tells is so interesting. The lightening is so menacing how it brightens up the canyon with something so powerful – while the building in the foreground is hauntingly dark and shadowy. The range of color you were able to capture
That I don’t know. The picture was taken at sunset, so its either from the colors at sunset or it was a camera malfunction.
People want to see this kind of stuff daily, head to Oklahoma and the rest of tornado alley, shit gets crazy out there.http://arts.ok.gov/p/capitol_collection/paintings/hurley/storm.jpg http://www.stormeyes.org/tornado/digitals/080330k.jpg http://community.spiceworks.com/images/groups/0000/0649/lighting-and-tornado-storm-wallpaper.jpg I see this stuff almost daily.
I saw this last night as well in Trondheim, Norway. Never seen one that big before, very cool. They are actually called halos: http://earthsky.org/space/what-makes-a-halo-around-the-moon.
I live in Western Australia and the sky here consistently amazes me. This was taken from Greenhead, about 3 hours away from home. After spending a few hours tinkering with the cameras, we set them all up for timelapses and had nothing left to
How is this skyporn? This is just a long exposure picture at night with no particularly interesting subject, IMO. You can hardly see the sky due to the brightness of the moon spilling into the rest of the image.
Hopefully I will have a few more I can post up once I finish going through my photos.
I love the colors! This picture definitely does not capture the grandeur of the actual sunset. I work outdoors and often stop to watch the sunsets. Love those California sunsets!
When the sky gets like that I just can’t help but be happy. It looks destructive and beautiful!
“They say we have such beautiful sunsets, because of all the air pollution.” – some guy, in some movie from the ’90’s

This is a gorgeous sky above an already beautiful view. If Lisa Frank had an evil secret lair, this would be it.
Yeah, it is. Rainbows form when sunlight is refracted and reflected back to you in raindrops; they show up opposite the sun, centered on the antisolar point (which is the point where the shadow of your head is), and are ~42 degrees in radius
You are mistaken. This is an example of [iridescent clouds](http://www.atoptics.co.uk/droplets/irid1.htm). “Fire rainbow” is not an official term for anything, it’s a colloquial term without a solid definition. I’ve seen the term applied to any of a number of colorful phenomena (usually a [circumhorizontal arc](http://www.atoptics.co.uk/halo/cha2.htm)),
Lightning technically isn’t striking the cloud, it’s the cloud itself that produces enormous amounts of electricity due to louds of dust particles :>
Forgot to add the place in the title. Taken in Rapid City, South Dakota, looking south and west towards the Black Hills. Harney Peak is on the left hand side. It’s the highest point east of the Rockies and west of the Pyrenees Mts.
Sunrise photography is a lot of fun. Once you’ve scouted your location, get there at least a half hour before sunrise, if not more. If you’re lucky there will be layers of mist on the ground. Then once you’re done shooting the sunrise, turn
When I was in sixth grade, I filled a disposable camera with pictures of sunrises on my walk to the bus stop. I did develop those pictures… I should find them. Yours is beautiful.
It’s actually [volcanic lightning](http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/05/photogalleries/volcano-photos/) from the eruption of the [Chaitén Volcano](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chait%C3%A9n_%28volcano%29) in 2008. Very cool stuff.
Naw, those are water droplets just outside where I was sitting. I was tempted to retouch ’em, but thought they were interesting enough to let alone. I wasn’t going for a perfect picture so much as an interesting picture.
I agree, I can’t think of one milky way shot I’ve ever seen with a guy posing in it that I liked. Maybe it’s because to me it’s so obviously staged – these photos require a very long exposure and nobody stands still for
