Well, as an astronomer and avid sky watcher, I certainly appreciate this image! We get a lot of these in New Mexico too. This is indeed a beautiful solar halo, and I know what you mean about not being able to fit the whole thing in the image; it wasn't until I got a wide angle lens that I could manage it :-) BTW, this is a solar halo, not a sundog; sundogs are little colored spots of refracted light that occur in specific orientations, often ocurring along with a solar halo, but often without a solar halo. Whatever, this is a lovely image!

Dramatic sky and excellent composition. That blue flare is a little distracting, otherwise perfect. 9

There must be a natural phenomena that I am not familiar with, the odd circle in the sky and the light burst in the lower left make this a little surreal. I don't find the composition particularly appealing.

Cool, but the blue lens flare takes away from it.

Love the ring and the sun and the shadows. Not so sure about the blue part.
