A most pleasing and commendable shot, Hans.
Thank you for sharing this splendour with us.

A fine example of very fine “Maiden’s hair” cloud.
A beautiful and well composed photo from you, Hans.
This is almost like an old sepia tone photo. I love it much!
The clouds, without doubt, make the picture. I also like the way the horizons seem to go on forever. The mute soft tones and sense of the ethereal grab my attention.
Your photo brings to mind a favourite piece of film music:- “Seven Years In Tibet”
Great photo! Thanks.
superb image Hans
Thank You Laurence and Michael!
An exemplary photograph! Most pleasing and , may I say, the clouds played well to your camera lens!
Thanks much for this splendid view!
Much appreciated Laurence
I would much like to see this photo of yours featured upon the CAS’s 2018 calendar. It is a most pleasing and satisfying shot, must say. I enjoy viewing it continuously.
That said, whoever has the heavy and onerous task of selecting just 12 photos to grace the forthcoming calendar has my great sympathy. Think – the hundreds, if not, thousands, of photos portrayed on the Photo Gallery – which of those would you choose? No easy task, for sure. Enough to drive you to drink, bad time!
That is quite a compliment Laurence, so thank you very much. This won’t drive me to drink, but I will take one on that. Cheers!
Wonderful and poetic!
Beautiful picture, Hans.
Thank you, Adolfo. I enjoy yours as well.
A beautiful and delicate shot, Hans. I’ve not seen a sun dog portrayed quite like this. Most unusual.
Thanks very much.
Fantastic image well captured
This beautiful sundog has two pups as well. Thanks for the most unusual shot.
Thank you all. The pups – so to say – are the same cirrus cloud at different moments. At first the cloud was only bright white (not shown). After getting my camera it showed already some reds on the right (left under). Coming closer to the sun the cloud got inflamed with red (middle) and afterwards the reds softened (right above). So the picture shows a collage of the fases of the cloud coming closer to the sun. Making a collage was possible because there was only this strange solitair cloud each time displayed against the same background.
It was really beautiful to see this happen.
Maybe a jelly fish in company with a little duck?!!?
My thought as well, a duckling!
Funny. The duckling must be in danger.
Or like a brain…
HAHA!!!! My first thought was a little birdy surrounded by a jelly fish….
I suppose it’s not contrail, bult altocumulus of the undulating kind. However it makes no difference for the display of colours.
Perfect capture, Hans!
Well done, Sir!
Thank you and also thanks to my neighbor who phoned to me to look at the moon, knowing about my intrest in this kind of phenomena. The halo was visible for about half an hour.
Thanks for your reply. Much appreciated.
You may like to know that here in the UK we have an expression, which is:-
“Halo near, rain near
Halo far, rain far”.
This old adage is virtually failsafe.
I sent this adage to several of my CAS members in the USA and elsewhere in the EU, and yes, they all said, “It works!
Indeed it works! The Dutch saying is:
“Kring om de zon,
regen in de ton.”
“circle round the sun,
rain in the barrel”,
but that doesn’t rhyme and also applies to the moon.
Best wishes too.
