22° halo and sundogs over Charleston

I've seen some partial halos eminating from sundogs, but this is the first time I've seen a complete solar 22° halo. These, of course, are like rainbows in that they don't last - so photo opportunities are limited. My photography suffered as I was blindly aiming the camera while keeping my focus on driving in stop-and-go rush hour traffic.

Is there really a wrong way to photograph such a difficult subject for being aimed directly into the light? Looks like you might have a little sensor dirt left of center towards the top.

Yeah - ideally you find a narrow interesting foreground object to block the sun and silhuette out. Even a road sign would have worked. The capitol would have been awesome if I had been closer.
