2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth

05-24

Stormy weather ahead, Ishmael.After the rainstorms of May 23rd, the weather was almost nice on the 24th.  The clouds were interesting, full of shapes and characters to find in their grey depths.  And, when the sun decided to peek out, it added an additional layer of wonderfulness.

Did you know?: Colors in sunsets and the like have to do with the particles in the atmosphere.  When the sunlight is shining directly at the earth, the only wavelengths that can make it through the particles are the higher frequencies because most of the larger ones are scattered.  But during sunrise and sunset, the angle the light reaches the earth makes it more likely for lower frequency light to reach our eyes–like oranges and reds.  🙂
