#40: Sun

I had to put this image in as "Sun".
There is no photoshop filters, no photoshop tricks, just a pure image that I took of the sun with a halo around it.
I was way out back at a pre-historic part of Australia called Lake Mungo, when the phenomenon occurred.
According to Aboriginal stories this halo is a signal that in 3 days it will rain. And rain it did!

  9. What a sizzler of a photo - a once in a lifetime opportunity surely and you were at Lake Mungo to capture it. Fantastic, Glenys.
    I love your 100 Themes blog. As a latecomer I am finding it hard to locate all the blogs and participants and I will probably never catch up with comments.
    Your artwork is always a joy to see - always with a message, sometimes confronting, creative, clever and thoughtful. What more could we ask for?

  10. I am jealous, I have always wanted to go to Lake Mungo (part of me is an anthropologist/archaeologist), the halo around the sun is also a sailor's prediction of rain (life's experience).

    Wonderful composition.
