Here we show images of optical phenoma that are around us every day, but that we do not see. Their main virtue is that there is no virtue at all. This is not a question of megapixels, nor sophisticated equipements, nor complicated theories, nor exotic places, nor being smart. It is only a question of opening our eyes, and letting us be surprised by the ordinary. A whole universe is there in front of us but we scarcely look at it. See that a lot of things can be observed just by watching.

Great Lights and Colors in the Sky driven by the Sun via scattering by air molecules...
|Phony sunsets||First lights from the sky||First lights from the ground|
|All in one||Solar glare|
...and their human-scale replicas
|Specks of dust||More scattering by dust||Scattering in your eyes|
|Laser ray visible in fog||Landscapes in the mist||Scattering in a driver license|
|Scattering by bubbles|
|Pure white via multiple scattering||Colorful water||Rhapsody in Blue|
|Changing-color scattering in glass||Sweet color change||Black or white?|
|Colors of Buddha|
|Droplet imaging||Imaging through roughness||Weird imaging|
|I can't see my own nose||Out of focus||Bright and dark drop|
