sun ring (Blue Mountains)

While walking the grounds of the CAO, checking the exteriors of the house, garage, observatories, and shed for damage, pacing out new driveways and podlots, I kept glancing at the sky. Cold conditions like this might produce sun dogs.

In fact, I could faintly see an entire parahelic circle around the Sun. Very nice.

Occasionally, as the high frozen clouds would drift, one of the pale sun dogs would brighten.

It looked better behind my sunglasses. Which was part of the reason I didn't try to photograph it.
