i quite like this shot. do you know that according to sience theory the sun is long gone... disc we see here is just a mirage. personaly i dont think i believe in this theory, same sientists say that the horizon we see is just 3 miles away... now how we here in edinburgh (the ones who are born and the ones who are not born here :D) can see fife then? enjoy your sunny holiday Jethro!

Sorry Unda I still believe the world is flat!


This image (or mirage) is from 2011 when it was much warmer than it is now.

Best wishes for an early spring - David

Very nice, and wonderfully warm. I just stared at it too long, the double vision already started.

If I guess right you also have got a frame taken one or two flaps earlier. Maybe you lost it inside the Photoshop? ;)

You ask an interesting question. The photo seems to be out of sequence. The frame number suggests that the sun is already up. What about the bird Sixten what do you know that I don't?

I need more sleep.

No David, the Sun is a Sun, I was referring to the shadowy figure up on the left side!
