I do love sundogs. this one is really lovely. the color seems to bleed down into the other clouds below it.

What a beautiful photo. I like the way the sundog is framed by the trees.

Beautifully soft, and almost a subtle lens effect beside it, as well, or am I seeing things!

Carletta that is so beautiful, a great capture. I love finding sundogs on stormy days, just a splash of color in an angry sky.
Have a great day,

Denise said...

Lovely photo and the sundog effect was so pretty, as are the trees framing your shot.

Sharon said...

It's funny, before I joined Skywatch Friday, I didn't know what a sundog was. Even though it's subtle, it's a beautiful shot!

Lovely sundog! I love the fawn, too above it. Very nice.

Very lovely atmosphere with the trees and faint rainbow colours.

Lee said...

Oh, so THAT'S what a sundog is. Lol, I was staring for a few seconds actually trying to find a cloud or osmething shaped like a dog or some animal. Hahaha. But then I looked "sundog" up and found out the truth. xD Great photo. :]

A touch of beauty in the sky
