Description On the right side of this Yalta photo (just above the Black Sea) you can see an atmospheric phenomenon named The Belt of Venus or Venus's Girdle. It appears shortly after sunset or shortly before sunrise and can be seen as a pinkish glow (or anti-twilight arch) that extends roughly 1020 above the horizon. The effect is due to the reddened sunlight being backscattered in the atmosphere, which produces the rosy glow. September 2011
Vlad [CrimeanMemories], Yalta and Kiev Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I am a photographer from Ukraine. I really love Crimea and I shot many Crimean landscapes, historical places or simply scenes of life. Here you can find only the best of them, carefully processed and ready for printing. I hope you like my captures and maybe order some of them as fine art prints, framed prints or canvas prints. I will be very proud of it because I worked hard on each photo trying to put a piece of my soul and a touch of great Crimean atmosphere into them. Thank you kindly for visiting my page on Imagekind!
