This image is straight from the camera

and was shot in the middle of the afternoon.  

I was trying to capture the coloured cloud 

beneath the sun.

It turned out brilliantly, Beverly! What an amazing spectacle! Is that what's called a "sun-dog"? Frank and I got pics of several of them as we traveled through Utah last week.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thanks so much for the information, Elizabeth. It was the first time I had seen such a spectacle.

Mmmmm super image B., I enjoy nights like this.
Beverly Andrighetti: Believe it or not, Chad, this was actually shot looking into the sun in broad daylight. All of the previous photos I had taken of the same sky came out as you would expect but for some strange reason the camera recorded the image just as you see here, more or less as a night scene.

I love these. I don't know enough about meteorology to tell what it is called but they are seen in the sky sometimes when people in other locations are seeing a rainbow.
Beverly Andrighetti: That sounds like a very plausible explanation for this phenomenon, Mary. Thank you.
Gosh, it's more like a moonshot isn't it. Fascinating stuff
Beverly Andrighetti: I couldn't believe how my camera processed this particular shot, Janet, as all of the other images I had taken at the same time, pointing directly into the sun, came out as daylight images. I'm sure there must be a technical explanation for it.
And you pretty well got it, Beverly!
Beverly Andrighetti: The camera recorded it more or less as night scene, Tom. In reality, it was a shot of the sky looking directly into the sun in the middle of the afternoon. Of all the images I took at that time, this was the only one that came out differently than the others.
You captured it very well Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much, Brian, but it was the camera that processed the sunny afternoon sky to the one as you see it here. For some reason it recorded the previous shots I had taken of the coloured cloud as daylight images but converted this particular one into a nighttime shot.
Wonderfully captured Beverly!
Beverly Andrighetti: This is exactly how my camera recorded it, Richard. Of all the shots I took of the coloured cloud as I pointed directly toward the sun, this was the only one that came out of the camera looking like it was a nighttime image.

Hard to believe this was taken in the daytime, Beverly
Beverly Andrighetti: I would love to know why the camera processed this particular image like this, Lisl, and not the other shots I took of the coloured cloud at the same time.

Breathtaking!
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much, Beth. I was startled when I put it up on the screen to see how the camera had converted a daytime image into the one you see here when it had processed all the other shots I had taken at the same time normally.
