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.

Konrad, I just learned about sundogs not long ago...

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.
