Ever have one of those days when you are so sad, it seems to make your whole body droop?  Even doing the simplest routine things seem like a challenge.  You just feel down in the dumps and can’t seem to shake them.  Is there a way to find reprieve from your gloomy countenance? Most definitely!  The first thing you need to do is think of something you enjoy doing, it could be a  hobby such as singing, dancing, painting, drawing, or baking.  Sometimes even going for a short walk to clear your mind and get fresh air can be enough to chase those blues away!  Whatever you choose to do to escape the blues, make sure it is something that brings you great joy.  That’s the only way to successfully rid yourself of sadness propelling you back to a life of enjoyment, a life of happiness.

What do I do to chase away the blues you might wonder? I take photographs in nature.  Something about being outside,  standing under an immense sapphire sky, surrounded by nature’s beauty, just makes my problems see insignificant in the great scheme of things.  The fresh air fills my lungs rejuvenating my body and mind.  I walk through the wooded path behind my house which opens up into a vast field.  As I walk I photograph the brilliant sun poking its way through densely populated trees. I observe and capture through my camera lens birds flying in a V-formation high overhead, see a hawk soaring majestically against the blue sky, appreciate the unique way trees grow in every direction, majestically reaching so high they appear to touch the sky!  I notice reflections in the pools of water created from all the melted snow, photograph random groupings of leaves, which are remnants from fall which survived the winter, and most of all I am constantly amazed by the different cloud formations which become drenched with color due to the brilliant sun streaming through them.  If lucky I may even see a lightly hued rainbow or a rainbow shimmer which encompasses those seven magnificent colors in a compact mini form within the clouds. 

Yes, photography is my way of chasing the blues away.  How can one possibly be sad when they are surrounded by so much natural beauty?  Seeing the world through my photography lens gives me a “natural high”, allowing me to move forward with my life, and face whatever comes my way with a strong, positive outlook!

A perfect circle or “halo” rainbow with sun and rays in the dead center to enhance it!

Being one extremely interested in rainbows and their meanings, I had read some time ago that rainbow arcs we usually see in the sky are actually part of a rainbow.  A rainbow is actually a circle! Well this was a new one on me! Then yesterday as I photographed the sun around noonish, I noticed rainbow colors slightly above the sun’s extended rays.  I stepped back to attempt to capture it and that’s when I realized I was staring at a humongous circle rainbow with the sun dead in the center of it! I kept backing up trying to captured this rare phenomenon, for me at least it was, all the while staring awe- struck  at the sheer size of it! It was directly over my house and backyard!

This shows the sheer size of the halo rainbow before I started backing up to capture it all!

Later I went in to review my photos and was thrilled to have captured this magical work of nature fully in several photos.  Being the type of person who has to know the meaning/symbolism behind occurrences, I looked up circle rainbows. I loved the name “halo” rainbow because it seems to symbolize angels and to me this halo rainbow symbolized the uniting of all the many people my families have lost coming together as one to tell me they are okay up there!  It made my heart and soul feel warm and happy to make this connection.

I tried to capture different angles of the sun in the halo rainbow.

Now of course I know that these rare rainbows are created from ice crystals being hit by sunlight, but as I go out several times a day every day to photograph the natural world around me, why haven’t I seen one sooner? Why was it that when I was feeling extremely low in my life and had beseechingly been asking for a rainbow the day prior that all of a sudden out of the blue, I get to witness the most amazing type of rainbow imaginable? Someone up there knew I was in need of a special sign.  This rainbow was it.  I spent the rest of the day floating on air feeling so much better about life!  I see this rainbow as a magnificent gift from above! Think what you will about its sudden appearance, but for me it came at a time I needed it the most!

See the rainbow colors running along the top of this circle rainbow?

Here the sun even looks like a star in the center!
