Sun Pillar seen in Romeoville, IL

This mornings sunrise was a rare treat. The cold temperatures and ice in the atmosphere helped the sun produce a sun pillar - the narrow, tall shaft of light rising above the sun.

The sun pillar only lasted a few minutes and disappeared as soon as the sun came over the horizon.

Now this is one really spectacular picture. Winter sunrises and sunsets are one of My all time favorite photographic subjects.
I have happy if not uncomfortable memorys, of standing outside in sub zero windchill conditions to capture these wonderfull images.

Nice work.
