What a surprise I got when I came out of our local shopping centre, looked up and saw this incredible bright Sundog in the sky. It’s the most brightest and colourful one that I’ve ever seen!
I quickly grabbed my camera to take some photos; by this time many people were looking up at the sky and wondering what it was. I’m afraid I didn’t make it any easier for them to understand as I tried to explain that what they were looking at was called a Sundog…what a funny name that is one little boy said as he smiled up at me, I can only image what was going through his little mind :-)
My photos were taken with a Canon G15 camera with a 1/2000th second exposure and ISO80 with a 23mm focal length using manual focus.
