Light Pillar by prperold Light Pillar by prperold
This is the second time that I have capture a light pillar. It's quite a sight. This was one heck of a sunset. So good that it rattled me silly. Performance anxiety is an awful thing.

Definition of a light pillar according to Wikipedia: "A light pillar is a visual phenomenon created by the reflection of light from ice crystals with near horizontal parallel planar surfaces. The light can come from the sun (usually at or low to the horizon) in which case the phenomenon is called a sun pillar or solar pillar. It can also come from the moon or from terrestrial sources such as streetlights."
