The Weather at Howhill

Photographs - 05 November 2001

A sun pillar

Sun pillar, not actually at Howhill but between Middleton-in-Teesdale and Barnard Castle on the B6277.

It was a long duration effect: I first spotted it well before Middleton but couldn't find a place to stop with a clear view. The sun is still below the horizon, and is not the blob at the bottom of the pillar.

Visit for more images and an explantion of how sun pillars are formed.
