This image was created on a bitterly cold afternoon at South Haven, Michigan and was shot on Fuji Velvia 50 slide film using a Nikon F5 and a Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 lens. The atmospheric phenomenon is known as a sun pillar and is caused by flat plate-like ice crystals in the upper atmosphere with the sun shining through the atmosphere, picking up color and the the light reflecting back to the viewer in an apparent vertical pillar reaching into the heavens.
“If you really want to know your mind, the body will always give you a truthful reflection, so look at the emotion, or rather feel it in your body. If there is an apparent conflict between them, the thought will be the lie, the emotion will be the truth.” Eckhart Tolle
