This is a 22 degree halo above the old lighthouse tower at Isle of Whithorn in Dumfries and Galloway. The halo, you'll not be surprised to know, is caused by ice crystals in the high cloud. They are not that uncommon but I don't think I've seen one as well defined before.
This did not last long and I blasted off three exposures at high speed so that I could do an HDR merge (I didn't want to risk losing the image by setting up the tripod). Very slight misalignment was quite easy to fix.
I'm going to have a rummage around the forum later (yey!) as I'm off sick and finally have some time to spend on epz (for a wee while, at least).
Thanks for looking.
