Sun Halo in the Desert

One day in the desert was surreal with a rainbow circle around the sun shining down on the alien looking red rock formations.

This was the last view of it before it faded.


  1. this circle rates a wow, never seen one this big. the circle with canine in it gets double wow

  2. Wow, the circle is amazing as is the light it casts on the landscape!

  3. Almost unreal, if it were not for that wonderful doggie posing there, with boots on as well. What a wonderful photo opportunity.

  4. Words escape us. That is just incredible!!!

  5. Well we 200% agree with the OP wants to know if you mom has ever published a book of photographs. WOW Shyla I hope you are feeling better
    Hugs madi your bfff

  6. That's pretty neat. I don't think I've ever seen one of those before.

  7. Wow! I've seen pictures of halos and related displays but have never been lucky enough to see one with my own eyes. But I've now seen a total eclipse (still weirded out in a wonderful way by that!) so who knows what's next on what the sky will do in front of me? Hopefully with a dog as gorgeous as your Shyla! I adore her.

    1. I will never forget the complete awe that I felt when I saw the total eclipse. It was beyond words. I'm glad you share that feeling!

  8. OMD, that is soooooo coooool!!! Shyla, that angle makes you looks like a puppy!!! BOL
    Ruby ♥
