A pair of Sundog's in the sky from Greta Jones and Sharon Smith, respectively. What a treat it is to see the sun perform this disappearing act as it falls below our Lake Superior horizon. Greta and Sharon gaze at scenes like this each and every day and luckily, they're always willing and able to share them with us!

Wonderful pictures!! To add a note tho....those are sun pillars. Sun dogs appear to either side of the sun. Check out this link for more interesting info:

I hope everyone had a great Easter!!
Happy spring to all!
Best wishes,

Nice pictures. Great addition to my slide show.

Renee, you were channeling my inner scientist/editor, as the first thing I thought was "No, those aren't sundogs, they're sun pillars". Not that they aren't lovely by any name.

I was at my parents' place in Jackson for Easter; Good Friday the snow started at around 1:30PM and hadn't stopped when we went to bed. Saturday morning there was about 8 inches.

The colors are the best part. They both have wonderful views every day.

Beautiful pictures thanks for sharing.

Mary, you had me scared. I thought with the first photo it was already the last day of March!

Mary says: I knew these photos were going to cause a few folks to quickly glance at their Pasty Cam Calendars, but with so many good sunset/sunrise photos for this time of year, I thought I'd throw in a couple bonus shots before the end of the month. Sorry to have scared you! :->

By Debra J. McCumber (Debwaugh) on Monday, March 24, 2008 - 11:31 am:

Holy Beautiful!! WOW!

By Uncle Chuck @ Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Monday, March 24, 2008 - 02:56 pm:

Mary you should run these two pic's again next Monday-Fantastic!

By Hilarie Alwine (Halwine) on Monday, March 24, 2008 - 03:48 pm:

I had to check the Calender when I saw these pictures. I thought it was the end of the month already. Close, but not yet.

Beautiful pictures!

Renee, Thanks so much for the link, I just spent far too long playing with their simulator trying to get an understanding of things I've seen. I will be spending many hours more. I may never understand.

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Wednesday, March 26, 2008 - 10:37 am:

Oops, my mistake too Mary. :)

By Renee in AL (Renee) on Saturday, April 5, 2008 - 10:11 am:

Richard, glad you liked the link. That site has quite a bit of interesting reading on it. I have always found such natural phenomenas most fascinating.
Best wishes,
