Star Light

I think this looks like light filtering through an orchard on a foggy morning, but if you were with me in the car when I took this you would know it's actually a huge cloud of dust.  A farmer was dumping really dry dirt with a bucket loader and every time he did, a huge cloud would form.  I decided to stop and roll down my window for a photo.  (I still need to wash my car and dashboard!)  Something about this scene reminds me of an old Playdough spaghetti factory we used to have.  I think there was a star-shaped insert that would squirt out star-shaped tubes of Playdough.

Melissa, I thought that these were special effects you created afterwards, but no! You really captured the scene with the starburst of light. It is just beautiful!
