Two birds flying in a Solar Halo circle of refracted light in ice crystals around sun and blue sky and clouds. - One of the very first images I took with my (then) new Nikon D2x camera. I was actually doing an initial test shoot in a parking lot near the San Francisco Int'l Airport when I saw this sun halo. I purposefully used the lamp to block the sun. As I took a few shots with just the halo, I noticed the pair of pigeons sitting on the light. I then spent the next few minutes with the camera agonizingly pressed to my face, waiting for at least one of the birds to take flight. I only had this one frame as both took flight together.
