Sun Fun

With all the ice crystals floating around in the air it is making for some nice atmospheric optics.

Pretty Parhelions (Sun Dogs)

This would have made for a cool photo but between the blowing snow, freezing hands and laying in the snow this was the best I could come up with.  Still kind of neat.
There was a 46 deg halo with this but it is impossible to get it in a photo without using a fisheye lens.  The 46 degree halo is classed as a rare optic.  Maybe someday I will invest in a fisheye lens.
