Artist's Description

I took this from the side of a road that leads to a lake near where I live in Amherst, Virginia, USA. I had already caught quite a few nice shots at my house, and just couldn’t get enough. So I jumped in the car and raced over to that road. Out here in the foothills of the mountains, you can still catch the sun setting in certain spots, even after it has gone down in others. I was so happy I went. This Sundog reminds me of fireworks, and the clouds remind me of waves. It was one wild night in the sky. Something like I had never seen before…or since.

TOP 10 PLACEMENT – Clouds Challenge – in Made By Nature

Sun Dog – scientific name – parhelion, plural parhelia – for beside the sun. It is an atmospheric optical phenomenon primarily associated with the reflection or refraction of sunlight by small ice crystals making up cirrus or cirrostratus clouds. When sunlight passes through the sides of a flat crystal, both the angle of the sunrays and the orientation of the crystals affects the shape and color of the sun dogs. Misaligned or wobbling crystals produce colorful and elongated sun dogs as shown in this image.

Spirits In The Sky was taken at my place the same night.
