I glanced out the window the afternoon before snow was expected and saw these rather unsual clouds . . . of course, it aroused my curiosity, and I was out with my camera in a flash! (...no pun intended there...)
Sunbursts are always fun to do, so when I found myself in the car with my camera, I decided to take advantage of the darker windows that let in less light, allowing me to point my camera straight at the sun without the sun turning into an enormous, shape-less mass of light.
