Favorite Images From 2011–Crepuscular Rays

Photograph of a crepuscular light ray over the Pacific Ocean at Asilomar beach, CaliforniaOften called God’s rays, crepuscular rays stream through gaps in the clouds as columns of light contrasting with a darker background. They occur most frequently around dusk or dawn when contrasts are most apparent. Crepuscular is the Latin word for twilight.

This was taken in March, 2011, at Asilomar Beach, California.
