Question: When is a sunset not just a sunset?
Answer: When it is a Mock mirage sunset.
So what do we have with this picture.
A warm weather sunset... the more observant may also have noticed the faint colour changes in the sky to the right as well and the very observant will have picked it up in the water reflection.
Well it was a Mock Mirage Sunset and a Sundog at the same time, and I didn't even know I had seen it! It wasn't until I got the picture downloaded that I realised I had 'seen' one!
