sailphoto is on a distinguished road
I have actively searched out the green flash for years. Over the last 20 or so years there must have been over 100 sunsets when conditions were "perfect" for the green flash. I have stared at the sunset standing amongst people who celebrated seeing it and still I have not witnessed it. The closest I came was when I badly banged my head in the companion way just after sunset. I think it is an illusion- try staring at a orange light in a dark room, then turn of the orange light, what do you see? I think it's something along that or a hoax by bartenders to build up happy hour business. For me a sunset in a beautiful place is a good enough reason for a rum!
