Equipment
This is a 3 minute exposure with a 16mm fish-eye @ f/5.6 on Fuji Velvia 100F. I shone a green laser through a barlow acting as a dispersion lens to have a wider "paintbrush" with which to illuminate the light pole.
Description
Here you see an ominous lunar halo, harbinger of the severe weather outbreak that began 10 hours later in the midwest on March 12, 2006.
