Yesterday when I woke up I saw that there were good conditions for a solar halo here in the mountain area in the western part of Jämtland. I kept an eye on the sky and around 13:00 local time this halo was clearly visible for about 30 minutes. As you can see there were lots of clouds moving in and a few hour later it was cloudy.

I really like the different type of clouds surrounding the Sun, it gives more drama to the photo compared to a clear blue sky.

Six shot panorama with 1/8000 sec. ISO 100 at f/8.0 using a Nikon D5 with a Nikon AF-S 14-24 mm f/2.8

Again what a great shot!
Is this a daytime photo of your 17 April nightime AB; the roadway and mountains look similar?

Thanks HP1954. This is more or less the same spot as my last post but in the opposite direction. This is looking South, the other photo with the Milky Way and the Northern Lights was taken to the North. This photo was taken one day later.

Really quite nice, the halo and accompanying clouds remind me of the golden snitch (hence my HP monmiker) !
