The weird thing was the streaks of light are huge. They're not just
reflections. And they are at the same angle for /all/ objects, and they're
long. They go halfway through the photo.
It's like it was sleeting at the time and the light reflected off the
I knew a point source of light was a bad idea (actually my shop lights are
pretty good in that they're a classic photography aluminum cone with clamps
on one end and the opening is huge - about 8 or 9 inches - which are actual
photography lights I bought at a garage sale decades ago.
The weird thing was the sleet across the entire photo which couldn't have
been a reflection because they were all at the same angle. There's
something in the physics involved of the way cameras work that caused those
huge streaks of sleet.
