Parhelion over Pikku Malla

During the site inspection work, the weather was constantly shifting, with bands of cloud rolling across the skies. At one stage were were treated to some spectacular parhelia which pulsed and shimmered as the clouds and ice masked or enhanced the reflections. We took a lot of photographs, but none of them do justice to the scene... you simply cannot beat seeing it with your own eyes.
