Personal 22-degree halo

Thought I'd share my very own 22-degree halo from 2014 as seen here in Miramar (Wellington, NZ) Halos around the sun or moon are caused by high, thin cirrus clouds drifting high above your head.

Fallen In Love With Brenas Photo

Old Buildings Of The UK

As for me I will definitely be putting a tick next to Sarah Free - I like her personally, I like the majority of her views, I appreciate the work she does and that she tells us about it. For the other 2 places up for grabs, hmm, not so sure. Maybe some younger voices is the way to go. All I also of you, dear reader, is that you VOTE. The election will be called on 12th October. 20–25 September Del
