Corona Reflected in Water

Calm water in a pond can be very useful particularly if there are overhanging leaves to block out the sun itself.

Bright reflected corona

This spectacular corona was easily seen reflected in the pond. Unfortunately it was a slightly breezy day so getting a still period wasn't easy.

Several rings in part of a corona

Three rings are clearly visible in this image and the cloud doesn't even reach as far as the aureole. Pushing the contrast shows a faint fourth outer ring.

Never look directly at the sun !   Shield the sun and use proper eye protection against the glare.
