Double Reflection
Iceland and Spain, on June 29, 2003

I was able to capture this Second Sun image from Ibiza [Spain] today. This is the first time I have seen a double sun image from this site. The other photo was sent to me today from Ísafjörður fyord in Iceland and shows both the reddish black spot in the center of the Sun and a large persona off to the left.
Note that in both these photos, a double reflection can be seen. In the Iceland photo, just beneath the persona. In the photo from Ibiza, Spain, at an angle from the 7 o'clock position under the sun. Note that lens flares do not, I repeat do not, create reflections in what is being photographed.
