Yes, I agree. Very beautiful and creative. Love the light bendining effect!

BTW, I guess the must be captured during day time since the moons in the background are lit from behind the rings, which most likely would be our deer and precious sun.

Itīs a beautiful sight. Maybe I have a doubt. Where does the shine in the rings come from, if it's night time? Probably it's the reflexion of the Sun on the rings, not the Sun seen through the rings, am I all right? Greets from Mexico.
