Snow Rainbow

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 50mm 1.4 ~ Settings: f/20 – 1/160th – ISO 200

I’m sure there must be a scientific name for this snowy weather phenomenon, but I don’t know it, so I’m going with “snow rainbow” haha. I never really seen anything like it before. There was a bunch of tiny bits of snow kind of floating and blowing around and it caused this crazy rainbow light and a strange atmosphere. I’m not crazy about landscapes, but if I could get bizarre light like this more often, I’d shoot these type of photos more regularly :).

I was out shooting this location with a friend of mine and took a picture of him in a serious photography stance there haha.

Thanks for stopping by, Rob



  1. Looks like the wal of the rainbow is about to hit your friend on the second photo …….. i really love the first one, it would make a beautiful postcard


  2. Actually the real name is parhelion, but most people just call it a sun dog, including the band Rush who use it in one of their lyrics. They are pretty cool, I always enjoy seeing them.


  3. Hi Rob! Would you mind sharing where this tree is? I’ve been looking all around the city for a tree in a field like this and I can’t find any!
