On the Banks of the Siuslaw River

Upstream from Old Florence this afternoon. There was a 22 degree halo around the sun and a circumhorizontal arc below it (also known as a lower symmetric 46 degree plate arc). I unknowingly captured the arc in the first photo (upper left). The blackberry plant on top of the post/piling helped block the sun so the halo was more visible in the second photo. That plant had to have gotten all the way up there from seed in bird poop! LOL!!

Thanks so much, Kim!! I'm always excited to find access areas I've never been to before and it was such a beautiful, serene spot. I'm very happy you like the views.
