Today I got a phone call around 1pm from a friend to tell me about the double rainbow around the sun. This time of the year we often experience “Sundogs”…which I think is caused by created by light interacting with ice crystals in the atmosphere. The last sundog I photographed was two years ago… in February, also here in Pangnirtung.
Quick as a wink, I asked my friend if she’d like to go for a walk…and I bundled up and headed to her house. We headed out of town–enjoying the SUNSHINE!
But also stopping to take a few photos of the Sundog.
(At times there was actually 2 rings–a double rainbow if you will, but only managed to capture part of the 2nd rainbow with my camera.)
Even though the wind was cold–and it was -19C, it was awesome to be out in the sunshine…Spring has arrived in the Arctic!
