Hi all! Got a few shots of a Sun Halo a few hours ago. Just thought I'd share  Grin

This was just as the Halo was appearing












Grabbed the wife's sunglasses


Played about with images in CS3, hope you like  Grin

Cracking images Stevie - didn't get the display over this way unfortunately - lots of fog coming off the sea now, just as the Met Office say it's supposed to be clearing!

Those are cracker images Steven. Very bright and colourful halo. Images 2 and 3 are excellent. Seen a halo, UTA and 22 degree E sundog here but nothing as intense as those!

Thanks guys for your comments, all shots were taken raw and converted in CS3 to bring out detail & colours.  Smiley

Nice halo, Steven. But I don't like the black colour of the clouds (photo #1) - looks very dirty. Is that a bad side of Photoshop processing?
