There is another interesting feature to this photo – at least to my eye. If you look carefully at a location between the sun (top center) and the larger “sundog” on the left, you might see the head of a dog. I see it, do you?

I am a halo and sundog chaser. This is a very nice shot. This is a link that describes all of the halos and arcs.

Based off of my Atmospheric Optics knowledge, I believe you have a much more special display here than a common Sundog. Below the sun is the lower half of Circumscribed Halo or a Lower Tangent Arc but below that to the left appears to be the rare Infralateral Arc though it may be a Circumhorizon Arc. Either way, this is a very nice capture

About paulnorm

paulnorm

Photography is a great joy for me; one of my favorite things to do. My wife and I live here on Whidbey Island, Washington; this is where many of my pictures are taken. The weather and the lighting conditions are always changing here which makes it a challenge and at times produces good results. This website is a wonderful place to learn and test your stuff. You can see what people like and what they do not like. I have learned a lot here. paulnorm Create your own visitor map!
