Beam me up

This was last nights sunset from the end of my driveway. The beam of sunlight is not enhanced at all. It looked exactly like that. I did not alter or enhance the colours either. I did remove some noise and enhance the black at bottom. I jumped in my car to try to get to the lake but was too late.
Beautiful. I believe this is called a light pillar. I saw one for the first time this year and was awestruck by it. Wish I had been able to take a photo but I was on the bus commute home. GREAT capture.

Stunning! I totally believe you about the no editing - I caught something similar to this once but nowhere near as brilliant in color. Fantastic capture, Tracy.

WOW, it looks like a gigantic sun flare doesn't it? How beautiful and how lucky you got to see and capture it!! Love the silhouettes against the sky too!! Beautiful scenery and landscape!! How nice to see from your driveway and I bet it would have been no more spectacular at the lake than right here!! FAV!

A beautiful capture of a Sun Pillar. These are vertical streaks of light that appear above and below a low sun as it shines through ice crystals. Fav :)

Fantatic :) Have never seen a sun pillar at any of my sunsets!

@gilbertwood apparently you need to have ice crystals in order to have a sun pillar. I am guessing you don't get those in your beautiful, warm climate. :)

@hermann thanks for filling me in on how they are formed. It really was amazing.

Fantastic orange sky! The windmills are a great background object too.
