Something on your camera lens? Is there any way to get a bigger version of the picture on here? Or blow up the "beam" part?

did you see it with your eyes? how long was it there? Were all other photo's before and after good? Can you post a higher resolution photo?

My friend took the picture, I actually wasn't there. All other pictures before and after don't have this. So lens not scratched, no hair. totally legit shot. Crazy water spout?? working on getting a higher res picture, but we aren't very savvy with this stuff

It's those Mountain goats! :shock: I knew they were not of this earth, the way they glare at you. Beware!

It's the contrail of a drop of rain or snow (or something small) falling right in front of the camera . There's another, shorter one closer to the lower left corner.
