  • @Jordi_Bee_ and I were wandering up a trail when a small and interesting sculpture appeared. I asked him to sit on a rock by the little art piece so I could get a picture, and just as I took the shot…KAPOW! Crepuscular Rays!! Also known as sunbeams, splintered light, god light, and sun rays...beaming like a spotlight right on the little art piece! We were amazed. A couple snapshots and it was over. To get crepuscular rays, you need a light source and some sort of medium to reflect that source. We see the beams of light as they shine through openings in clouds and are scattered and reflected by water droplets, particulate bits like dust, or even just molecules of air. The rays of light are actually parallel (!)…they don’t look like it, but think of how our eyes see parallel railroad tracks as converging to a vanishing point in the distance…same thing is happening here. I wish I could show this picture to the person who made this artistic little contraption so they could see the magical spotlighting effect it attracted when nature decided to collaborate on the piece.
