Closer to Nature

Now that Sausage is at school, I’m getting back into the swing of regularly blogging, which includes putting the Closer to Nature linky on here in a timely fashion!

My photo this week was taken in my Mum’s garden on Sunday afternoon, and is actually capturing a scientific phenomena as we witnessed it! We called it a ‘rainbow cloud’, but it’s real name is a ‘circumhorizontal arc‘, and Wikipedia describes it as “A circumhorizontal arc is an optical phenomenon – an ice-halo formed by plate-shaped ice crystals in high level cirrus clouds.” The bizarre thing is, the sun isn’t supposed to be high enough in the sky for it to happen in the UK in late August, but it certainly seems to be one when compared with the pictures shown on their page.

My Mum’s dog Ralph had to be put to sleep recently, so she’s taking it as a gift from him from Rainbow Bridge.

So, now it’s your turn. If you have any photos from the last fortnight containing anything from nature, post it and link up below, we love looking at everyone else photos and they all get pinned to our ‘Closer to Nature’ Pinterest board.

  1. I’ve never heard or see that before.Your very lucky to get it and so lovely to tie it in with the passing of Ralph.

      1. I knew what you meant, lovely 🙂

        The picture doesn’t even do it as much justice as it deserved. I commented to my Mum that I’ve never seen such clear, vivid indigo shades in a rainbow before but you can’t see that all that well here.

    1. Yep, I just happened to be taking a photo of a spider, which I had intended to be this weeks photo, when Sausage pointed this out!
