While driving across the back roads near Lough Fea on April 23rd 2016 we spotted a nice sun halo so we pulled over for a look. I have been observing and photographing atmospheric optical displays for 20 years and have always had a keen interest in spotting an unusual or particular dramatic formation. This was the best halo I had seen for a long time, it was a complex formation and I was immediately struck by it's appearance. These images were taken with the DSLR at 10mm wide angle, on view is the common 22 degree sun halo, to the left is an eastern 22 degree sundog however of primary interest is the intense upper tangent arc on top of the halo with a parry arc/suncave arc, together they formed a lens shaped structure with curving wings on either side, that formation alone made this an impressive catch and of a much more rare nature, read the report for more information. * All images are available for sale in the form of photo prints, canvas or digital files for licensing, if you are interested in a purchase simply drop me an email.
