Incredible catch and fantastic execution!!!!

That's as good as it gets...well done Peter

FWIW I got everything setup in preparation for any last blast of excitement from AR2565-67....but it looks like I'm in the wrong hemisphere;-)

Thank you for sharing!

Right time right place ....wow.
Simply stunning & I bet your still grinning, rightly so.

Big mist decended on me on the coast at that time so no chance for me, well done sir.

WOW ...how many friends here... :band
I honestly was in no mood for taking any photos that day since the weather on the island was really hot and really windy (something common here for this time of year). Factors that don't favor a good result.
However something pushed me to get to the observatory and watch the sun. At that moment the second explosion was under way. I was really extremely lucky. I wish similar luck to all of you. ;)

* Ghost-Fire...Thanks for your suggestions...I will try to improve the processing of animation :D

* Hi Αλεξάνδρα...To tell the truth I would have preferred ... the true jackpot.. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thank you so much all of you

Peter
