The weather had been oppressively dull for days: cloud, rain and fog vying for dominance and relentlessly gloomy whichever way you looked at it. In the middle of this, for a brief few minutes, the sun tried to break through but did not quite succeed. At least we were treated, albeit briefly, to this spectacle. I’m not sure if it is classified as a halo or a corona. Either way  it looked striking and the photo doesn’t really do justice to it.
