    Nothing typical about this shot. Very nifty the way the light splits to allow some greater degree of clarity to the tree in the center of the picture; presumably the tree was in the forefront, but still… This has moved up to number 1 in my favorite, very close to awe-inspiring, Cheryl Zovich photograph. On my way back from Boston around 4 p.m. today I pulled over to try and capture the beautiful path of light that rose from the sun and ended in the spectacular pink/purple cloud about 10 degrees above it. By the time I found safe ground, it was gone. Catching suns’ light is no easy task. Great pic.

    • Thanks Marc! I’m so blessed to be surrounded by so many interesting things to shoot. Sometimes the light is very challenging, but other times it works 100% to my advantage. And yes, it’s amazing how quickly a scene can vanish into thin air before you can capture it. Believe me, I know how that goes for sure!

      Glad you stopped by!
