Sun Halo over Reykjavik

Iceland, Reykjavik, Sun Halo

I was standing in front of the Reykjavik Parliament building waiting for the right moment to take my photograph when I looked up (never forget to look up) and I spotted the ring. Never having seen one before, I excitedly motioned to people around me to also look up.
FYI – the ring is caused by sunlight passing through ice crystals in cirrus clouds within the Earth’s atmosphere.
