Abstract

From a disappointing total of only four candidates in addition to the pictures in Weather, the panel of judges decided that the clear winner was T. Alan Clark of Calgary, Canada who will receive the prize of a medal and certificate. Alan Clark submitted a series of outstanding pictures on a variety of meteorological phenomena. The panel did not reach a clear decision on the relative merits of two in particular (see opposite page: (i) Sunset upon a Chinook arch, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, March 1992. Here the sun illuminates the underside of the Chinook arch, a lee wave cloud often seen during strong airflow over the Rocky Mountains, to produce an intense orange glow and an unearthly light for a few minutes, just after sunset. (ii) February 1990, Mauna Kea, Hawaii. This is one of a sequence of photographs of a short arc of an intense fogbow below dense clouds. The vertical alignment of the visible arc is produced by the position of the Sun close to the observer’s horizontal direction. Heavy snow was falling on the peak of the mountain at almost 14 000 ft, but this magnificent section of the bow and its faint secondary companion
