May and September are the best month to see solar halos on the French Riviera.
13 years after I took this picture, I discover that a parhelic circle is visible! It is the moustache-shape on the upper right and mainly at he upper left of the Sun, which begin from the 22° halo. This kind of halo is only visible a few time each year. I'm a lucky guy!
