Of Illusions and Grandeur
Never in my wildest dreams would I have chance upon the opportunity to photography such phenomena in my life. I believe that a good photograph would seek the photographer should one be patient enough.
There are two rare optical phenomena in this single photograph. One would be the halo (also known as a nimbus, icebow or gloriole), and the other would be the glory.
This was photographed while ascending the Stubaier Gletscher (Stubai Glacier) in Innsbruck, Austria.
