I'm pretty sure this is called a sundog.
A beautiful capture!

I thought a sundog view of the sky is worthy and very interesting.

Well, I have learned something! I had never heard of a sundog and probably never noticed one before but have just checked on Wikipedia and will now be on the lookout! Thanks for enlightening us with your capture of this lovely natural phenomenon.

Beautiful sundog. Great shot

Jane said...

Yes that is another term for them, they can usually be seen sometimes as part of a 22 degree ice halo, the halo in this case is invisible. Thanks everyone for your comments, much appreciated:)

And yeah PhotoCache is right that the sun can sometimes be elusive. You did a great shot anyway. Thanks for the visit.

Great photograph. Have always loved sundogs as they are not that common where I live.

Jane said...

Your welcome Pacey and thanks:) That's a shame Kevin, I hope you see one someday, thanks for dropping by.

Hi Jane. Thanks for visiting my
Montauk Point blog. A lot of erosion happens there with the storms. I like sky photography also. I have a blog on that also. Sunrise and sunset pictures are my favorites.

Jane said...

Your welcome, Mike:) I should imagine that over time and with the storms too that lighthouses that are situated closer to the sea will eventually need to be moved back to save them. Yes Sunrises and Sunsets are great. Thanks for dropping by:)
