Sundogs can be blindingly bright, at other times they are a mere colored smudge on the sky. If you are interested in the science of Sundogs READ MORE

  1. Red skies at night, sailors delight.
  2. Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.

Several tales of the appearance of sundogs have existed in popular culture. Some say a sundog brings good luck when spotted on a long journey, others say it will bring a radical change in weather conditions, such as rain.

Sometimes you can’t see the sky if you are under a Georgia oak. LOL..

Hi Joe, We get sun dogs here at altitude sometimes - in frigid weather, they're caused by ice particles in the atmosphere. I doubt that's the case there in Georgia! Pretty beach scenes.

Beautiful post Joe... this is a place we missed and have talked about heading that way during our seasons in FL, but even when we camped from there up the east coast we missed it somehow. Maybe someday.

Wonderful cloud formation in the sky.

I always get a thrill when I see a sun-dog, once saw three of them surrounding a setting sun. It just means there are ice crystals in the upper atmosphere to refract the sun's rays. I believe it is possible to have eight of them surrounding the sun although that is very rare as normally they appear when the sun in low in the sky.

Also, love the moss hanging from the tree branches.

You had good weather during your camping trip. It is probably good that you went early in May, rather than mid to late May!
