Solar Sunday

Here is something that sounds like fun.  Rebecca over at The Dusty Cellar is tyring something new.  She's decided to post a photo of sun flairs, sun bursts, and the like every sunday.  I've decided to join in on this challenge which she calls Solar Sunday.  To see her sun burst click here and read about how to join in on the fun.  Now without further ado, here is my best sunburst shot which was taken just a few days ago while out walking hubby and the dog in the park.

Just yesterday, my husband told me I should edit out all the spots to make the photo better.

I told him I didn't want to that I thought that's what made the photo interesting.

I didn't know there was an actual name for it until I stumbled upon Rebecca's photo.

I'm so glad I didn't "clean it up" as my husband suggested.

Thanks Rebecca.


  1. Sun flares can be fun. I love to play when I can.

  2. I love the photo. Didn't know there was a name for it! I like the colors of the spots!

  3. Woooo.... I love the spots in the shot too. The more the merrier. But my husband doesn't "get it" either when it comes to things like that in my photos. He likes the very traditional nothing creative approach.

    I love the long rays coming out from your sun flare. Thanks for the mention in your post too!

  4. Nice shot for sure. I do tend to capture sun flares and silhouettes quite a lot. I never listened when told never to shoot into the sun. I think it makes a very interesting photograph. Nicely done!

  5. Very cool picture. Is that a cat standing on his hind legs in the front of the photo?

  6. Love it, love it, love it! You did really well for your first time. I have one that my son did at the beach, maybe I'll join up next week!

  7. Is this sunrise. I wish I can jog or run again.
