Parhelia and Solstice Sunrise

Last Monday we had cirrus clouds that produced some wonderful sun dogs.
You can see them in the photo above. The sun is behind the palm tree and there's a rainbow of color with a bright light extending out was from the sun on either side.
Here's a closeup shot of the one on the right.
As the clouds changed the show evolved into a full 22 degree halo.
 Finally, we has a beautiful sunrise this morning. Not a bad way to mark today's winter solstice.
