Photo and caption by Diane Dufault

As I walked around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir on 10/23/12 at 3:30 in the afternoon, I noticed a huge bright pink halo circling the sun and reflecting vividly onto the water. As a professional photographer, I knew better than to leave home without my digital Nikon 3000, however here I was with only my old 3G iPhone. Casting fate to the wind, I shot one photograph directly into the bright sun in what I assumed to be a vain attempt to try to capture this amazing sight. This photograph is the result in its original form.

Location: Chestnut Hill Reservoir, Massachusetts - US
