A surfer's view of the Green Flash

I was down at the photo lab a while back, getting some copies made for publication from one of my green-flash slides. They had a new guy there — obviously a surfer — who overheard me telling the order-taker to make sure the green showed properly on the image of the Sun.

“Ho ho,” he scoffed. “Here's somebody who thinks he can photograph the Green Flash!”

“Take a look,” I said, handing him the slide.

“Gee, it really is green,” he said. “I always thought it was a high-school trick to get the chick to the beach!”
