Photograph. The sun, just visible above a line of trees at the bottom of the frame. A faint halo, in pale rainbow colors, arcs completely around the sun, with a burst of color directly at the top of the arc. Wispy clouds are visible everywhere in the dark blue of the sky.

I was out reading a book in a park on Friday, the final day of May, enjoying some sun before we went back to typical Seattle weather for a while. As the sun was setting a 22° halo developed around it, which I happily set the book aside to try to capture in a photo.

The subtle refraction of the sunlight into rainbow colors, most apparent at the top, seemed very appropriate going into June.

Happy Pride, everyone.
