The Layer between Worlds

On the clearest of days, when the winds of the Aetherium were calm and peaceful, and the layers between worlds wore thin, the citizens of Galavar could sometimes glimpse the trees beneath the ground through the fragmenting earthsky.

Those were days to tread carefully, though – one ill-considered step and away they would float, to resurface miles, days, and sometimes lives away, naked, cold and shivering, hearts filled with wild and improbable tales, and eyes full of a terrible, haunting wonder.

Had to go to the office today, to sign a piece of paper that needs to be in by Monday earliest, and on the way there I spotted parhelia and the barest discernible hint of the 22° halo [Parhelion, sing.; pl. parhelia. German: Nebensonne(n); English: sundog(s)].

I only had my mobile phone with me, it being a work and shopping excursion that required me to bring the put-stuff-into backpack rather than the full-of-camera backback, but I did manage to capture the above photo of them.

More on the Transit of Venus

M has gracefully allowed me to post this photo of us here (I don’t post photos of other [non-famous] [sorry, M! :-)] people here without asking for permission first), and so here’s a photo of us at the city beach early this morning (~4:20am). As you can see, the atmosphere was lovely, and it would have been a morning well worth being out and about on even without Venus transiting in front of the sun. But transit it did, and so here’re some more photos of said event:

I took the last one with a UV filter that M brought and that I held in front of the lense of my camera – I like how you can spot Venus perfectly in the reflection that the combination of filter and camera produced, but not on the direct image of the sun itself.

We also got to see a false sunrise:

It was, generally speaking, simply just a wonderful morning – and considering that I just got home from our lecture series and improv rehearsal about 45 minutes ago definitely a long day. Definitely worth it thought! (If you want to see some more of my transit photos, click here!)
