Sometimes You Just Get Lucky!
(January Sun Pillars)

Sun Pillar #1

Sunday, January 11, 2009.

While driving home the other night, I noticed a gorgeous Sun Pillar just as the sun went below the trees. So, I pulled over to the side of the road and took out my cell phone and snapped this shot. Just another example of atmospheric optics, for more info check out: http://www.atoptics.co.uk/

Sun Pillar #2

Monday, January 12, 2009.

This morning as luck would have it I managed to catch another Sun Pillar... Enjoy!
