Grabbed these this evening. It was amazing as the Sun Pillar just popped on like a light as the Sun dropped behind the bank of clouds. Brightest one I've seen in awhile.

Yeah, there's ice in the upper atmosphere ... probably responsible for the "soupy" appearance of the sky behind the low level cloud banks too.

Lovely colours!

Stunning image Richard!, it sure does look like a bright one and it looks even more impressive below that colourful cloud bank. Like the way you off set the pillar in the frame  Smiley
