For those of you not able to be in Cyprus at the moment, this is the sunset photographed from above Petra Tou Romiou (Aphrodite's Rock) over the weekend.

Great Pic Band, I bet you used some equipment a good step further forward than the Kodak Instamatic with Sylvannia flash cube!

Canon EOS 7D with 28-135 EF lens, shot at 28mm. No flash (the shop was completely out of cubes)!

This is the good lady's photo of me taking the photos (shot on a Samsung Galaxy S5).

Band absolutely fabulous photos, and bring back happy memories of our time when we lived there.

Those sunsets are one of the things that I think of often as they are the best I have ever seen. Thanks for posting.

Our son is a semi-pro back in the UK, but he and his family came to Cyprus for a holiday a couple of weeks back. He took some great sunset shots from the top of Venus Rock (the first two pics), which is the landscaped mound at the entrance to Secret Valley. The third pic (with all 4 of our grandkids) was taken near Aphrodite's Rock. Thought you might like to see:

Have to say, the original sunset pics from Band are my fave so far, excepting the children's silhouette pic from Lloyd.

And if you look to the right of the image the dark stripes that you can see are sheets of rain coming down.

Nunavut tea toss photo at -40 C proves internet gold
Yahoo via. CBC News 22 December 2015

A spectacular photo taken in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, is generating a lot of attention on social media.

The photo shows local resident Markus Siivola throwing hot tea into the air as he bends backwards. In the –40 C weather, the tea freezes as soon as it’s tossed.

Photographer Michael H. Davies said the whole photo shoot was planned after he saw a similar photo elsewhere and decided he could top it.

“I went through the science of it,” he said. “I figured, ‘OK, I need 40 below, I need calm winds, I need the sunset in the background so it lights up my fog when I film it.’”

Davies and Siivola travelled by snowmobile into the mountains about 45 minutes out of town.

It was a race against time to catch the setting sun. The community, which is only a few kilometres below the Arctic Circle, gets about 2½ hours of sun this time of year.

They were carrying five or six thermoses of hot water, each with different amounts so they could experiment to get the right shot.

“In each one we threw in a tea bag because we thought, if this doesn’t work, at least we can have a tea, because, as everybody knows, in Nunavut we go to great lengths to have tea somewhere strange, whether it’s in front of an iceberg, or on top of a mountain or in the middle of the tundra.”

The second shot proved to be internet gold, though Davies admits it wasn’t his first pick.

From Pontypool to Pangnirtung

Davies, originally from Pontypool, Ont., is a trained painter, photographer and glass blower. He has lived in Pangnirtung for about 10 years with his wife and, now, two young children.

“We just kind of randomly decided, 'Let’s go somewhere that nobody goes but everybody talks about.’”

For Davies, Pangnirtung is now home, but he admits the family doesn’t usually stay for Christmas.

This year, however, he says it would have cost $8,000 to take his family to Ontario, so they decided against it. Instead, they stayed put, and he took the photograph the next day.

“Obviously if we had gone south, it wouldn’t have happened.”

Something happened with the camera or it's way off backlit settings?
