circumhorizontal arcs photographed by david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandon rios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

In Slavic mythology, water nymphs (rusalki) are anthropomorphic creatures without fish tail who lived at the bottom of rivers. In the middle of the night, they would walk out to the bank and dance in meadows. If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, but if there are no men nearby, they would gladly play and entertain each other.
In some legends, their eyes shine like green fire, others describe them with extremely pale and translucent skin. Her hair is sometimes depicted as green or golden, and often perpetually wet. According to some legends, should the rusalka’s hair dry out, she will die.

The winter queen looks up and sighs…
Taken right after Phish in Charlotte, NC at the top of the highest hill in the lot, my first ever paper lantern lighting.
going to my bf’s in nc with my roommate and her bf and our friend alexa
we were supposed to leave really early (like 7) but ended up having to wait a little bit bc brandon’s bank has to open first
so we say we’ll leave at 8:30
it’s 8:38 and no one except for me is near ready (and we still have to go to the bank,walmart, and brandon’s house… oh, also to get gas)
sure guys, let’s get there at 11pm
no one really seems concerned at all to leave at any decent time
i guess it’s not a huge deal but it’s getting to me because i want to see my fucking boyfriend who i haven’t seen in 2 months
