Ice halos above Foveran beach
Ice halos above Foveran beach
Taken on a cold afternoon on the beach South of Newburgh. The photograph shows several features associated with ice crystals in the atmosphere. The sun is at the centre and surrounded by a 22 degree radius circular halo. The bright spots on the halo, to left and right, are sundogs or parhelia. The faint vertical line extending up from the sun is a sunpillar. A parhelic circle extends horizontally from the sun and extends beyond the sundogs, most clearly on the left.
