Spotlights

by dSnider in Rise/Sets

It's skies like this I like the most. Just hoping the sun and a few holes in the cloud cover will line up with each other and give you beams of light bursting through.

    I have to hold my breath for few seconds when I saw it.. I was really amazed on how brialliantly beautiful this scene is. Sun rays/lights popping out through the clouds! Just great and it was perfectly captured by you!

      Hehe...I felt VERY lucky to of been near a place to go when I saw the skies starting to break from a recent storm. Had a feeling something like this was possible and by the time I was putting my camera on a tripod, the first ray was breaking through.

      I am so very honored you do Barbara! Yes this is my little spot so close to where I live. My house is straight away in the distance there not to far beyond the trees. I shoot there often when the light is happening and I dont have time to make it anywhere else. I spent a few hours sitting and enjoying the show yesterday. It. Was. Awesome.
