Nature Again


And another wonder of the suburban demiparadise... Yesterday, walking along the street intermittently scanning the skies and trees as I do - most of the interesting things around us are above street level - I saw a sun halo very much like the one above. A beautiful sight, which I stood and enjoyed for some while. As the sun was low in the sky, the whole circle wasn't apparent, but what there was (about 270 degrees) was like the palest and thinnest of rainbows, enclosing a disc of darker sky, with the pale sun at the centre. You don't have to be in the wilds of Canada (where that pic was taken) to see wonders of nature...
