sun dogs!

© Colleen Hilman
      This is what I awoke to the first day of 2010! Talk about bringing in the new year! Cold and brilliant these sun dogs were so radiant we weren't able to look at them directly, let alone the sun. My camera had trouble focusing as well even in manual settings. I had to all but close my eyes as I snapped a couple of photos and hoped for the best. Did that, ran back into the house, stamped out the chill, rejoiced with my viewfinder, and walked a shivery line back to my coffee. H-h-h-ap-ppy N-n-n-new Y-y-year-r-r!

These look almost like you took them in my front yard! (Except my trees are more poplars and willows, no evergreens.)
