One of nature's best shows involves an event which happens many winter days in colder parts of the world. It is the meeting of sunlight on ice on a clear day. Low in the sky, sunlight is filtered through the atmosphere to produce warmly coloured rays (oranges, reds, yellows) which contrast against the opposing reflection of blues in the sky onto ice. The effect is more interesting because the snow turns some of that cyan into a darker and more violet hue.

乾龍 Thank you for your vote and support. I looked at your remarkable gallery. Taiwan is a beautiful land. I regret that, when I was at the international airport in Taipei several years ago, I did not have an opportunity to visit for a longer time than one hour! Greetings from Canada, Indonesia Jones

Dragan: Thanks for you vote! I looked at your gallery and was interested to see that Emperor Constantine the Great had a residence in Serbia. Europe has so much fascinating history! In Canada we have nothing so interesting, except its natural areas of forest, lakes and mountains. Indonesia Jones
