Temperate needleleaf forests mostly occupy the higher latitude regions of the northern hemisphere, as well as high altitude zones and some warm temperate areas, especially on nutrient-poor or otherwise unfavourable soils.

Sundog - Just like fire rainbows, sundogs appear when sunlight passes through ice crystals in the air. When the sun is fairly low in the sky, the light passes through plate-shaped ice crystals in cirrus clouds. This causes two bright spots to appear on each side of the sun, connected by a halo.

Tornado - A tornado near Anadarko, Oklahoma. The funnel is the thin tube reaching from the cloud to the ground. The lower part of this tornado is surrounded by a translucent dust cloud, kicked up by the tornado's strong winds at the surface. The wind of the tornado has a much wider radius than the funnel itself.
