Saint Elmo Fire
Photograph - Photography/digital Color
Copyright Warning Do Not Alter My Photographer's Notes: This amazing treatment makes this photo of a tall sailing ship pass through mariner's Saint Elmo's Fire. The original photo was digital enhance to produce the Saint Elmo effect. My father during World War II decribed it out at sea, like an electric charge on everything, your body, I think he described it as like a neon glow. its an atmospheric condition happens rarely, the salt water and electrons play a role. I also, remember while on a platform, seeing something similar, there were two satelite dishes mounted on the rail, and there was an approaching storm and between the two dishes were static electric moving between the two dishes. The crew was alerted to remain indoors. Water is a conductor of electric. And platforms are grounded to the base of the ocean floor.
This unique photo would be ideal in any nautical lover's living space, office, or sail boat. The vibrant colors would no doubt bright up a dull wall.
