I hope you didn;t turn into a werewolf when you took these great pics? Trying to click the shutter with claws can be a bit tricky!

RuneE said...

The old ones were right - a ring around the moon spells bad weather.

Mine is here.

I love these pictures and what effect they have shining through the cloud cover.
Some clouds looks bubbly while others look watery, very enjoyable.
Thank you for sharing.

From rainbows to moon rings quite a change. These are very haunting. I have been using your rainbow being a circle info a lot. Very impressive bit of knowledge.

What a wonderful sky and series of moon rings; they're beautiful photos! I hope you stayed warm through the cold spell.

(Was anyone else reminded of the Eye of Sauron on this visit...or do I just read Tolkien too many times over again?) LOL

Gorgeous!

Beautiful moon rings. The skies have been overcast here so I haven't seen any moon rings or the moon either!

Those are great shots. They are so moody that I expect a pivotal scene from a movie to follow.
