Sundogs


I couldn't resist posting this photo I took this morning. When the weather is just right, meaning very cold, we experience a phenomenon called Sundogs. Today they are the most defined that I have seen in a long time. They are like little rainbows that form on each side of the sun. It's very beautiful but I still have spots in front of my eyes from taking the photo.
Now I will run out to the studio (and I mean that literally because the wind chill is -29 celsius) and try a colored border on my city quilt.

Great photo - it looks like a giant eye. I have never seen a sun dog before, and I have lived places that it got that cold.

I, too, have never heard of sundogs. Is it possible it's a combination of latitude and cold?

I've never seen anything like that before. In fact I've only seen the snow once in my life! Thanks for sharing that, it's beautiful.
