Lens Flare in the Wild Wood

This is a moodily atmospheric shot... The sunflare itself is always a positive or evocative motif, but teamed with the contrasting blackout of silhouetted foliage it creates a 'light from beyond' scenario that lends itself to the creepiness of the moment, though the colour-flash in the corona is a very uplifting element. This frame was captured in the cemetery in Leicester, UK, in early November, 2007, a low, late sun on a chilly afternoon among the stones creating photo opportunities not to be missed. The pic was essentially un-enhanced. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic. Image by Mike.
