Sundogs

A certain type of cloud, a certain type of ice crystal, and sunlight for reflection…altogether resulting in a parhelion, or if there are two as in these photos, parhelia.

We call them sundogs.

Today they were beautifully obvious. By the time I had walked to the farther pasture it was nearing sunset, and there was a definite orange tint. Amazing.

    Lovely. Reminds me how different the skies are here in Iceland’s winter. The rising and setting of the sun are often accompanied by hours of soft to stunning changing colours. Both start and end of daylight here, fades in and out, and on some days that provides one long drawn out art piece.
