"We were at Ocean city, and I witnessed this interesting sight: a beam of light shooting straight up from the sun like a search-light. It was beautiful, and startling. I was told it had something to do with the snow in the atmosphere."
(Photo journalist, Maureen Spagnolo, caught this fantastic sunset in Ocean City, Maryland, in early January, 2011.)

That on a wild secluded scene impress
Thoughts of more deep seclusion; and connect
the landscape with the quiet of the sky

(Photograph by Mike Romani. Sibling kingfishers share a branch in Hoshinaike, Obu, Aichi, Japan. Romani said, "These are two of three recently born babies. I spent ten and a half hours here today as it was perhaps the last day for me to photograph the babies here. They'll probably fly off on their own before I'll be able to return next Sunday. However, there will probably be more babies in July and again in the autumn.")
