Sun dogs wrap around Wilton

Cold. Bitterly cold on January 11.  Ice crystals in the air caught the brilliance of the sun.  I was headed to  Bismarck, unaware of the sun dogs, but when I saw how bright they were, I headed east of town to capture their prismatic circle.  Even in black and white, the images of the crisp day are apparent.  Looking the other direction, the crisp cold created its own halo around the frosty trees of an abandoned farm in rural Burleigh County.
