Fingers Of God - Crepuscular Rays

I have a thing for crepuscular rays, the scientific name of this light phenomenon some people call the Fingers of God. They’re also known as “Buddha’s Rays” or “Jacob’s Ladder.” In reality, they are an optical illusion. The illusion is caused by the dispersion of light through water molecules and other particles in the air. Whatever. I like them.
