Ok chaps this image is a deviation from the IR images I’m trying to put up but….. not being one to back away from a challege …….:)
This was shot while flying over Antarctica one NYE a long time ago…. 1999 to be exact and its a very poor quality shot having had no love and having langished at the bottom of a very large box of similarly unloved negatives for nearly a decade but I’m not putting it up for its beauty but rather to help fill in gaps with two other IR shots I’ve recently posted. These shots Midnight over Antarctica and Zeus over Antarctica
Both these IR shots are somewhat of a mystery to me…. well Zeus over Antarctica certainly is… I just can’t quite work it out. Anyway some fella’s who shan’t be named don’t think I wouldn’t know a coronal arc from my backside so here you go fella’s. This shot was taken maybe a minute before I took the IR shots and bearing in mind that I am not an expert on atmospheric phenomena but rather an artist facinated by the odd and occasionally divinely inspiring play of light that turns up in my images …. particually when I use Infrared film…..I’m going to maintain that this is a circle not a parabolic arc and its a coronal arc around the sun…. which the plane I’m in is about to fly through….
But I’ll take feedback for sure….
and sorry again about the poor state of the image…. with more time it would be sparkly but I want to get this up…….
