Konrad,

That's a interesting photo. The top picture looks like it maybe a rainbow. Looks like an arch going up and to the left.

Good pictures. I think these are called Sun Dogs. We see them down this way once in a while, too. I don't know how to send a link to a web site, but just type 'sun dogs' into your browser and you will get explanations of them.

Great pictures,
up here in the frozen northland (Minnesota) we see sundogs when it gets very cold, as in well below zero. I understood that they were caused by ice crystals in the air.
