They look great don't they.
Just had a quick look on Google, quite a few ringed clouds under images, also some very interesting explanations. From natuaral cloud formations to
man made....even contrails from an aircraft.
Take a look at the comments on this page, i haven't had time to investigate further (have to pick the kids up in a sec) but one commenter mentions
the ring in that pages pic being made by aircraft from RNAS Yeovilton, Ilchester, Somerset.
I'd guess it just being a natural occurrance, and the colour being due to the sunset. Thats just my amateur guess though.
Thanks for posting though, great pic.
