Sky Watch Friday - Painted Sky



I caught a glimpse of this "sun pillar" on my way out to run errands on Tuesday evening. I am glad that I had my camera ready. I've heard of these and seen pictures, but I have never been lucky enough to see one, that is until now. This shot was taken about 15 minutes later. I think it looks painted and it has an almost surreal feeling to it.
