Caption: The optical atmospheric phenomenon known as parhelia or more commonly as sundog. Sundogs are luminous and sometimes colourful areas which appear on both sides of the sun and at the same elevation in the sky as the sun. They are caused by the refraction of sunlight in hexagonal ice crystals present in the atmosphere.
