Pearly Gates?   2 comments

I stumbled out the door with Peaches yesterday and looked politely away while she did her business.  Luckily I looked to the east, because this is what I saw.  I ran for my camera.

It looked as if the Pearly Gates had opened, and the Heavenly Host was streaming out.

There’s a name for these rays, but I’ll have to look it up.  They feature in some of the most glorious skies.

Thanks, Peaches, for getting me up — even if it was five in the morning!

P. S.  They’re called crepuscular rays — rather an ugly name for a beautiful phenomenon.
