One of the things I missed when I lived in Ticine was the horizon. We were surrounded by mountains and hills and we lived in a valley. Sunsets and sunrises were hidden from us and such scenes as this photo were not really possible. North Germany is pretty flat they call it the land of the unending horizon. In winter we get only a few hours of daylight and the sun sits very low causing such amazing shows as this one. A fantastic sun halo with sundogs.
