Photoshoot. Magnum ice cream.

Thanks for clarifying.  At initial glance I thought it was a pickle and was trying to figure out if there was some metaphorical meaning to it.

Great pic mate 

I think the ring is caused by ice crystals in the upper atmosphere 

have seen it here on occasions 👍

I believe this is true. In any event, it’s not a rainbow. A rainbow is always opposite the sun. I have seen complete circle rainbows, but only when high enough (I.e., from an airplane.)

A glory is something different than a full rainbow. I have seen 2 round rainbows while flying cross country. A rainbow appears as an arc because the horizon blocks the bottom of the circle. When you face a rainbow the sun is always at your back.

They're called Parhelions i think    This is Dr Edward Wilson (who travelled with Captain Scott to the South Pole)  painting a Parhelion that he had seen on one of his sledging journeys.

Congrats of capturing one, they are beautiful aren't they

Hi all haven’t had chance to put this up as of yet 

sat cooked my first Paella 🥘 not to bad for my first attempt 

Nice work great effort.   I visited Valencia recently and had their local Paella, which includes Rabbit, and runner beans.    I can definitely recommend giving it a go, as it was a really nice change from the much better known seafood dominated recipe.

I make Paella quite often at home and been doing so for a long time.  Usually 3-4 times a month.  It's a "kitchen sink" style cooking.  Could be poultry, meat, seafood, or any combination of the 3.  I make my own broth and freeze in 3 cup bags as it's usually 3 parts broth to 1 part rice.

Yep I hear you, thats how my mum taught me to do it, and how I've done it all my life.  That said I was surprised the dish seems to be quite different in its origins,  with very shallow rice 10-20mm deep, and crispy like a pilaf.  Also, all of the varietals they seemed to cook only seemed to feature a few ingredients.   I'm not suggesting theres any particular right way to do it, it's just always very interesting how recipes develop like Chinese whispers around the world. 

like all the best peasant dishes, there are no rules.

I am pretty firm on using Calasparra rice as the only constant.  I like it the most out of the normally used varieties.  Buying 5 kg bags also helps deciding...  I do switch between pans depending on the mood and how much meat I am adding.

Beautiful Friday afternoon in Palm Beach. Spent an hour and a half there today. Sometimes you just take things for granted. I’m 5 miles away and haven’t gone here in 6 months.
