22 Ice Halo w/ Contrails
« on: April 07, 2015, 11:59:24 AM »
Here's a 22 ice halo with several contrails to accentuate it. The photo was taken by myself just after sunrise on March 10, 2015.

That is just plain awesome - the convergence is a nice piece of the composition as well.
Excellent and thank you for sharing!

Thanks, Randall!  I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. It was the contrails that initially caught my eye, and then I saw the halo. Sometimes we forget to look up.  :-) I wonder how much we miss when we aren't watching.

I've been admiring your photos. They are beautiful and well done!

Usually man's input into a good nature photo ruins it. However in this case it actually makes it better.
Nice picture!

Nice shot! The contrails almost give it a movie theater skyward spotlight effect as if to say "coming to a theater near you" ;)
