The Green Flash, as photographed by Tom Eckles

Last Friday and Saturday the Mendonoma Coast experienced offshore breezes and there was a green flash each night at sunset. Tom Eckles manged to photograph Saturday's Green Flash. I am quite jealous as I have tried and failed to capture this phenomenon. I console myself with the fact Tom is a professional photographer. Thanks, Tom, for allowing me to share your photo here. Yes, the Green Flash is NOT a myth!

To see more of Tom's photography, here is the link to his website:

Dear Jeanne -
We moved from Sea Ranch 4 years ago and how we have missed reading your column. An SR friend just told me about your site so I am thrilled to be connected again with our favorite part of the world. And.......... the green flash was simply wonderful. Many thanks.
