Weekly Weather: Sun Dog

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Halo (a circle of white or colored light around the sun, moon, or other luminous body caused by refraction through ice crystals in the atmosphere.); Sun Dog ( is an atmospheric phenomenon that consists of a bright spot to the left and/or right of the Sun.); and/or Light Pillar (an atmospheric optical phenomenon in the form of a vertical band of light which appears to extend above and/or below a light source).

I used magazine photos and black textured scrapbook paper ( I cut out individual flowers and highlighted with glitter pens). None of the images of the sun exactly meet the definitions of the topic; but, rather, my interpretation of it. However, I do like my sun dogs! (click on the image to biggify!)
