Sun Portal – Parhelion, originally uploaded by Zen Roxy.

A gorgeous parhelion (“Sundogs are made commonly of plate-shaped hexagonal ice crystals in high and cold cirrus clouds or, during very cold weather, by ice crystals called diamond dust drifting in the air at low levels. These crystals act as prisms, bending the light rays passing through them with a minimum deflection of 22°. If the crystals are randomly oriented, a complete ring around the sun is seen — a halo. But often, as the crystals sink through the air they become vertically aligned, so sunlight is refracted horizontally — in this case, sundogs are seen.”) in Norway.

Blowhole at Docklands Park, Melbourne :: HDR, originally uploaded by Artie | Photography :: No need 2 comment 🙂.

This is “Blowhole” by Duncan Stemler, which can be found at Docklands Park, Melbourne.

“Docklands’ prevailing winds have been harnessed as a medium in this 15-metre sculpture by Sydney-based artist Duncan Stemler, creating a spectacular animated beacon within Docklands’ playground and park. The piece heralds the area’s maritime history and its renaissance as a vibrant urban destination. When the wind is strong enough, the armature and cups form a complex galaxy of orbiting balls, mimicking the anemometer on the top of a yacht’s mast.” (Description from the Art Journeys PDF located here.
