050917 - Sun Pillar


Even though the sun has set, it's light still reflects off the clouds. The vertical band of light in the clouds is called a sun pillar. This was taken from the top of Rockledge Golf Course in West Hartford. A public golf course, it's another great place for sunsets with plenty of parking. Even though only a few miles from downtown Hartford, the skies are moderately dark for star imaging as well.

The image was shot with a Nikon F4 and 80-200mm f/4 lens on Ektachrome Plus 100.
