Here is a breath-taking photograph of palm trees on a summer night. It was apparently taken in Gainesville, so the title is apt; don't let the cool, silvery color fool you. Note how each tree is surrounded by a ghostly silver aura, but of an aura of what?---reflected moonlight? Electromagnetic energy? An exudation of heat from the day? A distillation of moisture from the leaves? My imagination?
No--they're quite distinct. Perhaps the photographer has an unsuspected gift for photographing auras. I never really believed they existed till I saw this.
A magnificent shot, which has deservedly received much praise at Flickr.
