Phenomenon

As the sun was setting a beam of light shot up high into the sky! A light pillar is a visual phenomenon created by the reflection of light from ice crystals with near horizontal parallel planar surfaces.

This is a blend of two consecutive exposures. One for the sky, the other for the sea and foreground.

Edited in Bridge, Photoshop and Photomatix.
