Many years since I last saw this spectacle. Don't care if it isn't the right exposure etc. as it only appeared for a few minutes and this was the best out of about 15 shots. Couldn't see a thing for ages afterwards!

Sun dogs.
Don't often see them. It is an atmospheric phenomenon caused by ( if I remember correctly ) high altitude ice particles.
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

Father Ted is correct. I should have put some explanation, but as it's a bit complex, have a look in Wikipedia. On Google Images there are 1,000s of pix. Fabulous.
