My daughter was driving me to the airport when I spotted this halo to the left. We were on the highway through Stockholm at 10.30 h.  The "sundogs" we call "bisol´s" and they appear because of ice crystals in the atmosphere reflects the sunlight.
The red in the second pic is a reflection of my little camera.

On our route to the  Miyazaki airport on the island of Kyushu we passed the beautiful volcano. A clean window on the aircraft made a few images possible.
