Stunning Sun Dog Timelapse Video Over South Florida

Late yesterday afternoon and early evening, numerous people were tweeting beautiful pictures of a vivd "Sun Dog" over South Florida. At the same time, I was located on the eastern shore of Lake Okeechobee  with my camera gear set up on the levee capturing a time-lapse video of the same atmospheric feature.

Wispy thin high upper-level cirrus clouds were streaming over South Florida throughout much of Thursday afternoon, and this was making for the perfect atmospheric conditions to produce vivid Sun Dog's and Halo's in the mid March sky.

I kind of wish I stayed a little longer to capture about another 200-250 frames of the  raw timelapse, but I wanted to move to another location for a twilight timelapse I had planned later in the evening. Nevertheless, I'm actually very pleased with the motion video of the Sun Dog, just wish it lasted a tad longer. Next time, right?
