Sun dogs, sunsets

I love winter skies.  Frequently you can see the sun reflecting off the ice crystals in high clouds, making what some folks refer to as sun dogs.  This afternoon while I was out doing some yard work, I could see sun dogs on the left and right side of the sun.  Then I noticed above the sun an upper tangent arc.  In fact, I could see the halo between the upper tangent arc and the sun dog on the left.  Alas, by the time I got my camera, the view had changed.  I still captured a few pictures of the sun dogs on the left and right of the sun, though.
The one on the right...
...and the one on the left.

I'll leave you with a sunset picture I took a week or so ago.
Do you enjoy sky watching?

  1. Beautiful skies. Love the sun dogs. We have clear skies down this way today. We are just south of Canaveral to help son-Mark for a couple days. We are beat tonight. Doing two bathrooms in two and a half days.

    Love to all and a Merry Christmas....
