You probably thought I was going to talk about beer. Nope. Sun flares.
I watched these two jets streaming towards each other. The sky was clear blue and I thought the contrast with the white would make for an interesting shot.
Once the files were uploaded to LightRoom, the unseen sun rays and flares became part of the art. A very unplanned but welcomed surprise.
The color was not how I remembered it - as clear sharp blue. Instead a sea blue-green hue appeared, most likely from the rays and flares acting like a prism. I'm not entirely sure but this sounds reasonable to me.
The one giant flare provided a hoop for the jets to move through.
Do these photos look like underwater shots to you?
We shall find peace.Anton Chekhov
We shall hear angels,
we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.
