I spy the sun!

Today's challenge (and look, I am getting it up today) was to spy something that shows light. There are a million things one could do with this, but I have been wanting to learn how to do sunflare, so that's what I decided to do. The problem was, I didn't have much time. Nor did I have much of a location since I live in a new development with very few trees. And then the time factor kept me from going somewhere better.

Anyway, I did get a few nice sunflares, but the rest of the subject matter in those pictures (telephone poles, dirt piles, etc.) left much to be desired. Besides, the whole sunflare thing needs a lot more practice. So then, I decided to just shoot the sun itself.

And I got this picture:

And I didn't even go blind in the process!


  1. That's a beautiful shot! Nice work.

  2. Okay - that's really cool!

  3. WOW, that is an Awesome photo! Just Beautiful.

  4. Nice photo m'lady.
    Those are toughies looking right into the sun!

  5. Very nice! AND ... in answer to your question in case nobody's said ... type in the following order:

    1.) <
    2.) a href="URL to link"
    3.) >Link Name<
    4.) /a>

    I broke it up into 4 steps thinking that if I were to type it out, the whole thing wouldn't show up! If, after you read this and should be confused, then go to this site, and what is said for Myspace also works for Blogger ... good luck!

  6. That is such a good photo, really cool!

    Fantastic shot.

    If you live in Southern Utah, you have the world's best playground for landscape photography, if that interests you.

    I saw the shots of the kids on your Flickr account (I LOVE the "I'm five" shot). Nice work.
