A Circumzenithal Arc

Had a chance encounter with a meteorological phenomenon tonight as I was riding home - well I suppose all manifestations of this kind are - in the form of a nice circumzenithal arc where the sun's light was scattered by icy high altitude clouds to form a sort of tiny rainbow.

It seems to be the season for them, East Midlands weather had a nice photo of one the other day; perhaps a low sun makes for optimal conditions for these arcs.

I've been running again, a 5km in an unspectacular but decent 31.50. I've got the puff, but my legs feel very heavy and my feel and knee is a little sore, so as I have said before I'm not sure serious distances would be wise. I tend to forget my age when it comes to sport!

It does feel good, mentally to get back out on the road, but I will have to be careful.
