DAVE BRUNER: Photo Gallery — ‘Sun Dogs Of North Dakota’
Took this image of the bright sun dogs highlighting this cross Saturday morning. Gives a spiritual uplift to a lot of us who live in this area of the country.
Walked out to this spot and liked the image of this lone tree highlighted by the main beam of the sun. The sun dogs are the main white spots opposite the sun on the right and left parts of the halo.
Another highlighted tree.
Quite a walk to get to this lone tree with a nice shadow in the snow to tie in these sun dogs.
Liked the snow patterns on this ridge to tie in with the sundogs.
Snow patterns with the sun dogs.
Photographer Dave Bruner ventured out in the extreme cold (minus 25 degrees with a wind chill of minus 40) Saturday morning to try and capture some images of the sun dogs, as extreme cold is needed plus ice crystals in the air. It all came together as he was fortunate to capture this phenomenon in full detail. They formed the complete arc and halo with the two distinct sun dogs on each opposite side of the sun that also has this diamond shape. Dave has been trying for a number of winters to capture the complete image of the sun dogs, and although he froze his know what off, it was well worth it to him. He hopes you enjoy the images.
