SkyWatch Friday; Lens Flare


Instead trying to avoid lens flare, I decided to embrace it for this capture

After nearly two weeks of clouds and rain the sun is a very welcome change. Here in South Central Pennsylvania we have experienced the coolest, wettest May on record since the 1950’s.

This is a beautiful and very expressive image, Salty. What you've done so well is something I try to teach students: think outside of the box with your photography.

Well done!

Well done! The flare adds something very interesting to the composition! It is really cold here this May too! And wet!

Salty: Sorry I missed this yesterday, what a beautiful shot.
Sometimes the effects turn out beautiful.
I took a vacation day and went fishing. I was able to photo a Great Blue Heron on shore.
