A Photo a Week Challenge: Flare

Sun and lens flares can be annoying, but I like it. Flare can add a wonderful hazy, sleepy feeling to an image, a touch of magical unreality. I often shoot directly into the sun to create flare and to cause rays on sunlight. When I’m a little lucky or clever, I get both. This is natural flare. No filters, no special effects. Just the early morning sun in Autumn in Vermont.

This is my favorite flare image.
