Description

My wife and I happened to notice the solar halo. The jet contrail changes it to the universal symbol for "no sun", but a little different than the sunless overcast skies we usually have.

This was taken with my kit zoom lens at 18mm. Wish it were a little wider to capture the entire halo. My camera settings were AV at F/22, the shutter speed was 1/8000. I forgot to reduce my ISO from 1600. The only processing was to use ArcSoft's Auto Enhance feature on the out of camera jpeg to darken the sky and increase contrast.
