Weekly Photo Challenge – Sun

In the WordPress weekly photo challenge  this week’s topic is the Sun, “in all its glory” as part of the photo composition. (Sunsets were a previous challenge.)

Because I have no lens filters, these entries show mostly raw white sunlight, but they were taken in some fun places, and I do like silhouettes.  The first one is a halo behind Big Ben mid-afternoon…

The next was taken from the end of a wharf in San Franciso – the sun peeking over clouds & highlighting a sea gull…

The last two were taken at my house.  The first after a snowstorm over a year ago…

Here’s a cropped version of that one that gives it a different feel…

The last one I took in my back yard yesterday…

That’s my sunny side!

    Lovely! I especially adore the San Francisco photograph as that is where I now call home. Did you take all of these photos yourself?

    Oh, and thank you for stopping by my blog http://www.lifemindvitamin.com! I wouldn’t have found your lovely photos had you not!


    • Thanks so much so visiting me as well! I did take these all myself. We used to live in the Bay Area and were thrilled to get back there for a bit a few years ago. London was a trip we did with our niece – always a great trip!

    Funnily enough, I love snow (it’s the melty, slushy bit that I don’t really like!) and sunshine on snow always makes for magical photos. Love the Big Ben photo the most though! Thanks for sharing them 🙂

  17. Thee are beautiful – especially the one taken in your backyard after the snowstorm. In the first version (un-cropped) the sun actually looks like a big, bright, twinkling star sitting on top of the tree – like a Christmas tree!
