Moon Pillar

These stubby pillars above and below the moon were easily visible to the eye. The reflections off the ice crystals have also elongated the overexposed region close to the moon.

The moon was 11 degrees up when this image was taken, which is rather higher than the usual pillar image where plate like crystals are involved.
