About This Image

Ice crystals in high (cirrus?) clouds create a "fire ring" around the sun.

What a wonderful capture Bruce! The colours are amazing and a very interesting phenomenon - think I will look at the site Karen has mentioned. :)

Awesome capture Bruce! I missed a good one last year when I was driving out of town without my camera. They don't happen very often, the crystals have to be perfect for it. Nice! Don
