Castle Crags Panorama

Description: I’m falling in love with aerial panoramas again, so expect to see more in the future (months). This image is of Castle Crags, just outside the state park for regulation purposes, with passing fog.

The little circle rainbow you see is called a glory. Essentially a full rainbow, but it’s a circle, but it’s a bow? It’s what we’d see in space behind earth, if space was filled with clouds. I’m not explaining this well. It’s cool. Let’s leave it at that.

Here’s a video of what a glory looks like out a plane window.
