wow, this is a gorgeous sunrise.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. It was our going-away gift our last day at the cabin. smile
so so beautiful! Thrilled about your new camera!
Ginnie Hart: Thanmk you, Robin. I'm like a little girl in the candy shop. smile
Ummm - yes, I'm confused - having just come from Arches National... but I don't think you have arches in the Georgia Mountains! Clearly a camera trick... whether planned or not! And it's really, really beautiful!
Ginnie Hart: Everything is "real" about this image, Elizabeth. Astrid thinks it's a...reflection? I still have no idea how it can happen.

Sometimes it is great to have a split personality, it is never bored.
I witnessed the sunrise with you. A glorious day that became. I am thrilled for you with the new camera and the results.
Absolute fabulous colours.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I suppose you're right about some split personalities, MLMA! smile I still wonder how this happens...unless it really is a reflection, as you mentioned to me. You saw it, too. What's funny is that I didn't notice it at first. HA!

You sound surprised, Ginnie?!
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Lisl. When was the last time you saw the sun rise in front of a mountain???

Totally confused Ginnie. Is that sun against the mountain some sort of reflection from the sky??
Ginnie Hart: That's what Astrid thinks, Chris. But how a reflection could be so real like that is beyond me!!!

First I thought I were on Elizabeth B.'s blog - what a dreamy, thrilling photo -it is your eye and your new camera!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I am honored to be thought on Elizabeth's blog, Philine. smile Thank you. My new camewra is a real joy...and much easier on my sciatic issues when I'm traveling!
The sky is falling?
Ginnie Hart: It must have scared the sun into dislocation, Michael?! smile

I know what you meaan about the optical deception Ginnie, however it is a truly superb photie-graff.
Ginnie Hart: Do our eyes really play tricks on us like that, Chad??? I never even saw it till the second time I looked at it. smile Thank you, kind sir.
un seul mot : MAGNIFIQUE !
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Magali! Merci...and welcome to Shutterchance!

WOW...what a breathtaking scene! And - yes - How is it that the sun rose (or set) in front of the mountain?
Ginnie Hart: Astrid thinks it's a reflection, Marcie...but how is that possible?????
Wonderful picture Ginnie. As a Gemini this looks perfectly normal to me grin
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Only from you, Bill. grin

A double sunshine day, Ginnie. Very auspicious!
Ginnie Hart: It was the morning we left the cabin and went down to Atlanta off the mountain, Mary, so, yes, in that regard it felt very auspicious!

It looks like a hell hole in that mountain. I believe it would be lens flare, as you were shooting into the sun. You can vaguely see another such imprint on the clouds.

These bridge cameras are quite good, eh?
Ginnie Hart: That's it, Louis...a lens flare. Exactly. I knew it had a name. It still quite astounds me, whatever it's called!

I am loving the camera...especially the looooong mm lens which is quite spectacular.
Gorgeous and mystical! A great shot Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. Louis says it's a lens flare because of shooting into the sun...but I've never seen one so "real." smile
Wow, Ginnie that is spectacular. What an amazing shot. Hope you enjoy your new camera. I have just bought a new one too, a Fujifilm finepix 3o zoom. Trouble is it hasn't stopped raining so haven't had a chance to go out and practice.
Ginnie Hart: Toys are fun, Pauline, aren't they! As soon as it stops raining, I can just see you running outside to play. In the meantime, you can always play inside! grin
I am spell-bound
Ginnie Hart: Well, thanks, Libellule. It did catch me by surprise!
Whatever your new camera did, Ginnie, it makes for a stunning & surreal image. Something that deserves to be framed & displayed. Coincidentally, the post that I have up for tomorrow is an image that my Nikon captured a bit differently than what I expected to see. Seems some cameras like to do a bit of trickery; quite appropriate for this time of year.
Ginnie Hart: Louis says this is a lens flare, Beverly, because of shooting into the sun. But, I declare, I have never seen one quite as real as this! I 'spect it is indeed a bit of Tom foolery. smile

It totally look like the sun is a hole in the mountain! I love it, and I am thrilled that you love your new camera. I have seen such beautiful results in your shots already!
Ginnie Hart: I guess it's a lens flare, Sister, but it sure is differenrt from any I've ever seen. How fun. And, yes, I'm quite enjoying my new toy. I thought my 300mm was quite something. But 1200mm?????? OMG.

Fantastic image.
From an astrology magazine- The Earth’s air bends the image of the Sun upward, so we can still see the Sun even though it is physically below the horizon. If we didn’t have air, daytime would be shorter. In fact, this effect works for sunrise as well, so we see the Sun rise before it’s physically cleared the horizon. Not sure this had anything to do with it but they also talk about it causing a reflection. So we can often see both.
I have a similar shot that is the same type of mountain and fog mixture.
Ginnie Hart: In this case I assume it's a lens flare, Aussie, making the sun appear to rise on THIS side of the mountain instead of behind it. Still, whatever, it boggles the mind. smile Thanks.

Marvelous
Great sunset color, mist

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Helys. Sometimes the sun rises in front of the mountain and not behind it. smile

My goodness that's some powerful zoom that you have - and an equally powerful image.

...and who cares how it happens - it looks wonderful.
Ginnie Hart: And I thought my 300mm lens was strong, George! It's really boggling my mind. What a great, fun toy. smile And yes, who care how things happen! Thanks.

Ummm.. yes! Looks like a humpback bridge with the sun shining through! Good luck with the new camera.
Ginnie Hart: Louis says it's a lens flkare, since I'm looking into the sun. Leave it to him to figure it out. For me, I still like thinking the sun is rising in front of the mountain. smile Thanks, Alan. Toys are fun.

No confusion about the fact that it is an amazing image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Jennie. Thanks.

Amazing!
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Anne, isn't it! smile
It is a very spectacular shot Ginnie, loads of atmosphere, and very mysterious, I guess Louis is probably right in his assumption. Does this mean you won't be lugging your DSLR with a long lens about quite so much?
Ginnie Hart: I was able to sell my bazooka lens, Brian, immediately, to a blogger friend in California. With it I was able to buy this new Canon PowerShot and a 128GB iPad4. A nice exchange, I thought. And no more weight to carry around to aggravate my sciate issues! Of course, I'll still keep my big-girl camera and my 24-105mm and 100mm macro lenses! That's all I need.
Yes, I'd go with lens flare - a product of the lens system. Great shot!
Ginnie Hart: What an amazing "discovery," then, Tom. smile

It is just gorgeous smile

The sun being so bright might have reflected back on the lens, causing the effect.

I have had similar, but nothing so dramatic.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Cherry. Lens flare. It was definitely dramatic this time, wasn't it!

Great and fabulous sunrise! Congratulations for this shot!
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Oscar.
I know the sun is reflecting off the mist but it sure looks like it is setting a little closer that is should. Amazing.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Michael. It's like when you see the end of the rainbow in a field nearby, which we have actually seen before! smile

C'est magnifique Ginnie ! Bonne journée

Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, JP. Merci.
What a beautiful going away gift to remember!
Ginnie Hart: It definitely made our day, Jacquelyn! Thanks.
Looks like your new camera might be full of surprises Ginnie. It certainly does colours beautifully.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Janet. It has been a great delight...and I'm still learning all about it. smile
What an amazing capture Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard. It was so fun to be surprised on the big screen. smile
I love the light, the warm colours and this wonderful atmosphere. Good capture!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Wolfgang.
That really is confusing... And intriguing!
Ginnie Hart: It sure confused me, VP! smile Thanks.

uh.. i'm guessing reflection from a filter? but other than that, i'm baffled as well.. grin pretty cool though.
Ginnie Hart: Apparently it's a lens flare, Rian, from looking into the sun! Who would have known? smile Thanks.
