from flare to there





A Russian, an American, and a Blonde were talking one day. 

The Russian said, "We were the first in space!" 

The American said, "We were the first on the moon!" 

The Blonde said, "So what, we're going to be the first on the sun!" 

The Russian and the American looked at each other and shook their heads. "You can't land on the sun, you idiot! You'll burn up!" said the Russian. 

To which the Blonde replied, 

"We're not stupid, you know. We're going at night!"


What do you think about sunflare?
Some people don't love it so much.
Me?
I pretty much adore it.
I don't think it is possible to have too much of it.
I heart the sun.

I'm all about the light as well. It really does add a flair to images, doesn't it?

LOL

Oh gosh oh gosh oh gosh - I love this image! Love the flare, the profile of the flowers, the perfect detail of her hands, the sun saturated hues, her expression... perfectamuendo!

Tracy P. said...

It complements her expression perfectly. I would say I like shooting sun flare a lot. Still working on love. But I love YOUR sun flare and everyone else's.

Fantastic picture, as always! And I adore sun flare but I think some clients question what I'm doing when I put myself in the direct line of sun! :)

Charlotte @ Cowgirl Clippings said...

I love the warmth of sun flair. It makes me feel like a cat laying in the sun.

Maggie May said...

Thats funny!

You have to be careful of the sun....... the fairer skinned you are, the more risk.
So many people over here develop Malignant Melanoma because of getting too much sun. Best to respect it.
My grandsons lost their dad to it.
