Sun dog!


The sun is out today (ssshhh) and it reminded me to post a picture of the sky last week.  The "halo" around the sun is known as a sun dog - light refracting on ice crystals in the atmosphere.  In the middle is the beginning of a light pillar.  Amazing to see.

PS thanks for the welcome back....


  1. That is gorgeous! Isn’t it amazing what beautiful things just seem to pop up some days? Thanks so much for sharing with us - it’s been awhile since I’ve seen one.

  2. Fabulous image, difficult I should imagine to capture, but you have.

  3. wow, I've never seen one of those. Thanks for the fabulous photo!
