Wow! What an incredible picture! This should have been at least a Staff Pick!
The "glory" is not exactly common, and you captured this one perfectly.
Thank you also for providing a good explanation of what we are seeing.

Best to you, Vera, and Be Safe!

Thank you for your comment!
I would not call Gloria rare for us, since it is very humid in our region and you can see it regularly if you fly a lot or go to the mountains. But it is very beautiful, I agree with you!
