Moon ring!

Last July I was leading a group of photographers on a trip around Svalbard, not far from the North Pole. Highlights of the trip included polar bears and other wildlife, but other subjects caught our attention too. One example was parhelion, where the sunlight refracts through high-altitude ice crystals to form a wide ring around the sun.
