Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: 'And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people' (Exodus 13:21-22). May the Lord go before us, light our way, and lead us safely in the new year!

Thank you, Mitch and Jan! Mitch, that was the verse that came to mind: a pillar of cloud and a pillar of fire.

Thank you, Betsy! Yes, I have seen some others; maybe it IS the time of year. I seem to get more colorful sunrise/sunset shots in winter, thought it must be the humidity or angle of the sun, or maybe I just notice the sky more when there are no flowers to capture, LOL! I think this is the first time I've seen a good one when I had my camera with me and could find a place from which to shoot it. It sure didn't last very long, just a couple of minutes.

Nice catch, Kathy, and well done. As you may have seen, there have been other sun pillar photos here; perhaps it is the time of the year.

Thank you, Gil! The sky had been totally clear all day until it suddenly clouded over about 3 p.m., and then I thought there would be no sunset until it blew clear just as suddenly about 5. The sun reached the hem of the clouds as it went down, and this was the result. Glad you like it!
