The Sun

Filed under: Photography,Weekly Photo Challenge — allmycke @ 6:16 pm

I could probably find a thousand different pictures of the sun in my files – but this is what I settled on for the Weekly Photo Challenge.

November 23 2008, I took these pictures of the sun before 3 PM when it was already on its’ way down.

A few minutes later I realised there were some fantastic sundogs, but with my simple camera I could only capture one of them.

This afternoon there were also sundogs but nowhere near as splendid as this one was.

  2. Karen – Not by design – I think it was because of the limitations my old camera had…

  9. I hadn’t heard of them either. It is breathtaking!
    I hope that your cold is getting better now, and the spirits are lifting!

  11. Robin – Actually, one of the oldest depictions of sundogs is from Stockholm in 1525. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sundogs
    I thought you’de be able to see them in South Africa also since they do occur when the sun is low… Maybe ice crystals in the air/atmosphere is what makes them so vivid just south of the Arctic Circle.

  13. Cool. Being from South Africa I’ve never actually heard of sundogs… Beautiful colours – warm and cool at the same time.
