- Description: Super fat tire bicycle required to ride snow. Heading into the sun with fine fine optics. A 22 degree halo rings the sun with parhelia (or sundogs) leading into a parahelic arc which will at times circle the sky behind this view. A faint 46 degree arc touches the bottom of a bright circumzenithal arc appearing like an upside down rainbow. There is so much "diamond dust" or ice crystals in the air that the sky is only very faintly blue.
- Gear: Canon 5D mark 2, Sigma 12-24mm wide angle zoom
