105/365 Captured Moments - Evening Tranquillity

I went out with a specific destination in mind but was side tracked by horses, old barns, and chasing a sun-dog.  I had never heard of sundogs before but now realize that my image  Shrouded In The Clouds has a sundog in it, so how cool is that.  

Wikipedia -"A sun dog (or sundog), mock sun[1] or phantom sun,[2] scientific name parhelion (plural parhelia), is an atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun.[3]
Sundogs may appear as a colored patch of light to the left or right of the sun, 22° distant and at the same distance above the horizon as the sun, and in ice halos. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but they are not always obvious or bright. Sundogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low.
