Sunglare

Looking into an extreme lightsource can sometimes give a chip a hernia, and certainly the viewscreen has difficulty interpretting the volume of light, but the image itself can be a remarkable one. Harsh contrast, of course, but still with plenty of information. I took this shot in May 2009 from Carpark 1 of Flinders University, looking from the hills at Bedford Park across to the sea, with the late afternoon sun framed neatly among high cloud, and though much of the foreground area, here cropped out, was essentially black in comparison, there was enough information in mid tone areas elsewhere to make the image interesting and visually representative of the day. Colour and sharpness were enhanced, and fine rotation was used to square up the horizon line. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic. Image by Mike.
