Keyhole Rock in Big Sur, California. "This phenomenon occurs a few days a year during the winter solstice and when weather conditions are perfect for the alignment to happen. With my pure luck I got to experience a truly magical sunset. It felt like volcanic eruption through natural light." -- Bachir Badaoui 2015 National Geographic Photo Contest, Part II - The Atlantic

Reminds me of the sun shining through the window into a dimly lit room. Wonder if this guy's thrill would be 10x if the sun only came through that hole in the rock once every ten years. (Yeah, I've been just about everywhere in the western hemisphere and seen just about all the sights, so maybe I'm a little jaded.)
