Snowbow Sky


Kind-of like a rainbow, but with the absence of rain we'd decided they should be called 'snowbows' (sounds better than 'icebows' as well).

After some quick research (i.e. Wikipedia), it looks like they are called halos or icebows - an optical atmospheric phenomenon formed by the refraction of sunlight through ice crystals.


The particles (ice crystals) in the air are apparently a meteorological phenomenon referred to as diamond dust - or less eloquently, clear-sky precipitation.

Brighton Doughnut

Brighton Doughnut by Martin Isaac

"Right on the beach, next to Brighton Pier, jutting out into the sea, is a large circular sculpture, a gift from the Mayor of Naples, officially called The Big Green Bagel but known locally as the "Seasick Doughnut". This unique piece is both loved and loathed by the resident's of Brighton and has been the subject of many a heated debate in the past."
