    If you've ever seen the sun through the platelets of 'powder snow' then you'll have some idea of how this effect is generated.

    I believe WIBs is right in her observation and the depth of the 'whiteout' in progress in the image leads to a very 'expanded' and unusual view of sunlight (like the glow of the sun through fog can look quite big)

    That looks like a problem with the image signal. The strange area definely looks like this or an artifact of the camera, certainly doesn't look something real the camera captured.

    Edit: Actually it is indeed a problem with the camera exposure. The distorted patch is where the sun would be, it looks like the sun has blinded the camera out of it's normal capturable range. I have experiened this with my digital camera, in fact anyone can. Just take a photo of the sun directly and there will be lot of distortion of colours and artifacts similar to that. Might damage the camera though.

    Nothing else.
