    This is another picture from just outside the shop, the sun was coming up and I didn't have enought time to get to a better vantage point, and i couldn't very well let this one pass so I took it with all the power lines and what not in front, but it still looks pretty cool i think.
    They are all the same shot, just minor differences in exposure.

    Even though you were stuck behind all the 'civilization' stuff, you still got a cool capture.

    So that is what that was, i had no clue. I had never before seen the sky like that, is was really cool. I wish i could have gotten to a clearer sight, but I was already running late for work.

    Thanks for the comments all!

    Nice capture of the sun setting. I've never heard of an ice pillar either, but you did a good job of getting it.
