It was ten minutes before sunset looking across the South Atlantic ocean at a wonderfully clear horizon as I set up the camera with thoughts of a possible green flash.With five minutes to go,however,a large bank of clouds obscured the sun but just at the right moment,in a most serendipitous movement of the clouds,a gap appeared and a green flash could be seen by the naked eye for about a second.
