SUN HALO: Temperatures in Kolkata, India, today are above 90 degrees F. So when a gathering thundercloud drifted in front of the sun, producing a patch of cool shade on the ground, photographer Rana Khan looked up gratefully. Then he scrambled for a camera!
"This stunning halo appeared when the sun was nearly overhead and lasted for almost 30 minutes," says Khan. "It was very bright."

Well, it's because of a conspiracy.....people are putting chemicals in the ground that are making rainbows all over.....sprinklers, waterfalls...
Really....there is a video showing one on YouTube!
(That video should be preserved as a monument to the decline of human reason.)
But back to topic.....What kind of filter is being used? I've always been disappointed in my sky pictures; I have a UV filter, mostly to help protect the lens. I have a NikonD40, with a AF/VR (which I can turn off) Nikkor 18-200mm lens (cost more than the camera.....and I'm saving for the Macro version). Even the bluest sky washes out and I would rather take the picture I want than adjust with Photoshop.
