The other evening when putting out some rubbish, I was amazed to see this huge ring around the moon. Somewhere along my life's journey I've heard it said that mariners and farmers recognise this as a sign of coming rain: sure enough, it rained almost continuously throughout the following day!
This shot shows its relationship to our adjacent properties.
(The sky was actually black, but the ring didn't show up on the auto setting, so I tried some other options and this is the result (apart from slight cropping) straight out of the camera.
