Thursday Challenge—"trees"

I like to experiment with shooting
directly into the sun.  If I still used film, I would
have wasted plenty of it with this little
exercise—but sometimes (especially if you get up
very early, before the fog burns off) it works.

[To see more of the Thursday Photo Challenge, go here.]


  1. I admire your work. I hardly ever take pictures but appreciate this art form. My son took me to Paris ten years ago in Februray and I love all things Paris. The pictures on your Paris blog brought me right there. Are you really thinking of moving to Paris again? I wanted to move there after my visit but not brave enough. I will read your blog instead.

  2. I wish you could have joined me today at a presentation from a wonderful magazine photographer here. He talked about using sun flare to our advantage. You certainly did my dear.

  3. I do this too! I think I may have wrecked my camera doing so though. it was an old Powershot so I had an excuse to get a new one.
    awesome shot alexa!

  4. Very nice!
    Is it an early morning shot?
