Wednesday’s photo101 challenge was to involve the sun. It has been so cloudy and dismal here of late I thought I was going to have to search through previous photos or come up with a creative solution to Wednesday’s assignment. Just as I went to do some vacuuming (yuck, not my favorite chore) I saw the sun peek through the cloud cover. Thank goodness my camera was close by because those clouds kept a’moving. I had two short minutes before the sun disappeared behind those heavy, but travelling clouds. I again used my trusty Canon Rebel and used one filter I haven’t used before in Pixlr. It’s called emboss and seemed to highlight the bare tree branches in the background effectively. I thought this photo would also be appropriate for my Friday Nature Photo. What type of cloud do you see in the photo? They’re not cumulus. Possibly nimbostratus or cumulonimbus?
