Two views of a 22-degree circular #halo around the sun that I saw on a walk this afternoon.

Halos are a lot more common than I used to think. Then I started actually looking for them. Even on a warm day like today, there can still be ice crystals higher in the atmosphere of the right size and shape to cause a display like this (or even more complicated ones).

@sohkamyung Thank you!

Usually I just go for a utilitarian, "got a picture of the halo," but this time I tried about five different things to block the sun, trying to compose an interesting shot as well. I'm going to have to keep that up!

@kelsonv Definitely keep it up. The composition of the shots are really nice.
