Halo by tfavretto Halo by tfavretto
Ice crystals in thin cirrus clouds produce a halo around the moon on a cold night in the middle of winter.

This would almost qualify as a self-portrait if I hadn't set the focus on the sky and I had done a better job of standing still during the exposure.

Actually, I think de-emphasising you and throwing the focus onto the sky was absolutely the right choice.

Not that I'm saying anything about your appearance, of course... :P

Wow, that's neat! Never seen anything quite like that before. It looks like a rainbow if you look at the "halo" close enough. lol Rainbows at night!

BTW I don't blame you for not being able to stand perfectly still for 30 seconds. :XD:

Yeah, it does look like a rainbow, but it's a 22° lunar halo: [link]

And rainbows do appear at night sometimes: [link]
