A 22-degree solar halo at Dores on the shores of Loch Ness
It's amazing what you can capture with a 7-14mm lens - an entire 22-degree solar halo with plenty room to spare.
I revisited Strathnairn for the first time in several years - the area's former familiarity now alien despite the Highland near-unchangeability. One of my favourite locations is the beach at Dores, looking down the length of Loch Ness. On this occasion, there was a solar halo just hanging in the sky - sufficiently bright that most folks simply wouldn't look up and see it.
