I know that one of the standard rules of photography is to never shoot into the sun, but sometimes I see scenes before me that make me want to break the rules. I absolutely love when the sun is hidden behind the clouds but seems to be desperately trying to reveal itself by shooting rays out from behind the thinnest sections of cloud cover.
We were fishing on the point at Wright Point Resort one day (well Mikey was fishing and I was probably reading) when I turned around and was captivated by the beauty of this scene. It’s hard to capture such a scene properly with a camera, but there is such a contrast between the bright rays in the upper half of the photo and the dark shadows and reflections in the lower half that it really appeals to me. I love the atmosphere it creates. This would probably have been a great HDR scenerio, but I have not yet taken the plunge and purchased HDR software. I just don’t seem to be able to find the time, but one day I do intend to give it a try.
So, what about all of my WordPress friends out there. Do you like to break the rules?
