Sundog (parhelion), Ground Blizzard and Mt. Errigal
The Sundog (parhelion - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_dog) can be seen directly over the peak of the smaller mountain as a rainbow colored patch near the sunlit edge of the snow cloud.
The miniature Ground Blizzard (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_blizzard) can be seen throughout the sunlit edges of Mount. Errigal and the smaller mountain covered in snow.

Eskimo In Ireland – Joshua the Igloo/Colosseum Maker

Eskimo In Ireland – Joshua the Igloo/Colosseum Maker
My kid demanded that he wanted to make Igloo after he learned from a TV show that bricks can be made out of snow using a box. We stopped at an area on the higher grounds where there was enough snow and Joshua chose it as his Igloo site. He made the bricks using a plastic container box (under his knee in the picture). This is what he made out. Of course, I helped him to make it fast we couldn’t be out there for hours in the freezing temperature with occasional freezing winds and snowfall.

The highest mountain that you see behind is Mt. Errigal

Is it an Igloo or Colosseum?
