Why is the brightness so different in the 2 pics?
One could speculate that one pic was taken at a different time in the season than the other pick, and that both pics are of the same object/sun.
Also, reversing the photo.
Without 1 full picture, I have a feeling the majority will have doubt.edit on 15-9-2011 by SnakeShot because: (no reason given)

That is a sun dog or parahelia. These are not rare. They occur on average twice a week. I see them weekly. There are many interesting things to see, but people spend so much time indoors that they miss out on these beautiful effects. Try this site to see what other great effects you might have been missing.
To find the sun dogs section click on Ice Halos.
