I was sitting in my truck, waiting for my daughter's soccer practice to end, and taking pictures of random things within sight of my camera. My daughter only practices in two different places, at two different schools. And I think I've shot everything within reach of the parking lot at both. So it comes as no surprise that I was quite uninspired as I sat there, almost taking pictures as an afterthought.
I do have some interesting photos of my foot, if that tells you anything.
When the sun started setting, inspiration finally hit. But this time it wasn't the colors in the sky that had me grabbing for my camera and praying the picture would capture it. It was the rays.
Maybe I'm sheltered. Maybe I'm horribly deprived. I've got scads of pictures where the sun's rays are busting through the clouds and shining down onto the earth, but I can't recall ever seeing the rays going up. So, yeah, this picture choice was a no-brainer.
Post-processing: noise reduction, sharpening, selective color adjustment, and border addition.
