Circle of Light

Circle of Light, 2018.

Ice crystals in cirrus clouds reflect and refract sunlight, showing the colors of the human visible spectrum in a faint circular halo around the Sun, 2018. When sunlight enters the Earth’s atmosphere, it contains only 40% light that is visible to human eyes, as 10% of the sunlight is ultraviolet and 50% infrared light and therefore outside of the human visible spectrum. Earth’s atmosphere then filters out most of the ultraviolet light, however.

For this photograph, a total of nine limited edition prints, all hand signed and numbered, are available as original photo prints under acrylic glass, as HD metal prints, and as canvas prints. Additionally, one artist’s print has been printed.

Prints are available in the following sizes:

  • 16 x 12 in (40 x 30 cm)
  • 24 x 18 in (80 x 60 cm)
  • 48 x 36 in (120 x 90 cm)
