  • beautiful!

    • Yes, it is. But it’s a pity the comments are in Russian. I enjoyed them so much! Here’s one:

      “Необычное атмосферное явление, которое невозможно объяснить, всегда небесное предупреждение о грядущих катаклизмах, если человек не одумается и не обратится. Апокалипсис никто не отменял”

      “The unusual natural phenomenon, that can’t be explained is always a warning from the skies about the future cataclisms that will happen if humanity won’t bring itself to sense. No one cancelled the Apocalypse”

      and then: “no, that’s the sign of the close victory of communism”
      and the last one: “it’s not a rainbow. It’s a HALO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_(optical_phenomenon))
