Morecambe Bay Sunsets

Morecambe Sundogs by Alex Hall

This fairly rare phenomenon are commonly made by the refraction of light from plate-shaped hexagonal ice crystals in high and cold cirrus clouds or, during very cold weather, these ice crystals are called diamond dust, and drift in the air at low levels.
