Details:
There was a very nice display this afternoon of multiple solar halos and arcs including a 46° halo, 22° halo, 22° parhelia, parhelic circle, upper tangent arc and a parry arc. A circumzenithal arc was also visible but off the top of the frame in this horizontal panorama.

The high cloud shield of this weekends east coast winter storm can be seen in the photo as well.

You didnt mention it, but that has one of the brightest Lowitz arcs Ive ever seen. Im sure the guys at atoptics will like this too.

Did you enhance the image at all?

seems to be a lot of leaves on the trees for Jan. 22 in Cape Cod.

And more than this, two types of Lowitz arc are present, the lower & upper ones. In the extreme right upper edge, a faint coloured subhelic arc appears to be there, and a Tape arc is to be recognized as the brighter spot in the 46degs halo. Left of this, I likely distinguish a faint heliac arc too. What a great display!
