Skywatch Friday

Driving out of the work parking lot this afternoon I was surprised to look up and see this sight.


I've seen them (not sure if it's a "true" sundog or not) before, but the clouds kept changing it, or even the direction of my travel. There aren't many places to pull over to the side of the road and take pics really, so I found a halfway decent spot and grabbed a pic. This was not the brightest view I had, but was the best I could get at the time.

This photo is also near where I work, there's a large pond with lots of egrets around, and this cool clock tower. They've been baling hay recently and loading it up in the field nearby, and I definitely wanted to capture that!

Beautiful shot, looks as though a rainbow is peering through the clouds of the first photo.
Happy SkyWatch!

Cool score on the sundog! I'll never forget the one we saw coming home that time from Boston.

Cool pics. At first, the one picture looked like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I like the details when I clicked to enlarge it.

"Louis" has never been able to capture a sundog. Good catch, Kim! We can almost smell the freshly-cut hay in the second image!
