Solar Halo

I'm an avid sky watcher, especially at my floating cabin on Powell Lake in British Columbia. This year I have been fortunate to get some solar halos pictures.

In early June I saw one while sun bathing on my back deck, a pleasant surprise.

If you are new to my blog I invite you browse around. Try some of my other Sky Watch Friday pictures or visit Float Cabin Living to see what it is like up the lake. -- Margy

  11. Beautiful, thanks for stopping by mine. Aren't there a lot of former teachers out here? I guess we all still have things we want to say.

  13. Your photos are lovely and I am wondering if you also get good views of Northern Lights? Your blog is very interesting and I have spent some time reading some of your other posts as well. I shall bookmark your site for more browsing later and look forward to learning more about your floating cabin community.

    thanks for having visited mine.

  14. I have seen but never photographed a sun halo - your pictures are great! I enjoyed looking through your blog and seeing your floating cabin. It seems very similar to boat houses we have here that are anchored to shore but float instead of being on pilings.

    Thanks for visiting me!

  25. Welcome to Sky Watch Friday. I'm playing 'catch up' in reading the most recent SWF posts. I don't recall that I've ever seen a solar halo, either. Nice capture. I look forward to seeing more of your photos.
