While staying at the lodge, the second evening we had a beautiful sunset featuring a strong sun pillar, a vertical shaft of light rising up from the sun. I've seen pictures of stronger examples, but this is one of the best I've ever seen personally. It's caused by millions of tiny floating ice crystals in the atmosphere.
At first there really wasn't much colour to it.
But as it progressed, the pillar got brighter, and a faint hint of orange and pink started showing.
This is the view from the front porch of our cabin.
As sunset progressed, the small clouds drifting across the sky towards us started turning pink, along with a more colourful sun pillar.
Until we ended up with an interesting sunset of pink clouds and orange sun pillar. Meanwhile, it was approaching -30°C outside, so I headed for the warm fire!
