It was a bit of a challenge to get the picture of the day. I had to go to work, be there almost all day and then go to church right after. There was no time to slow down and I was afraid I wasn't going to have a chance to take a picture. Before leaving the house (in a rush), I saw birds on a tree. Right before I got in the car, I decided to photograph those birds. I noticed the pictures were coming very dark and that perhaps I wasn't going to be able to edit then. I did some editing and got this.
Once in the car, I drove a bit, then stopped and took a picture of the sun. I used the zoom lens. I didn't get the flare I was looking for. I got this.
So, I thought I still needed a picture of the day. When I got to work I really wanted to take a picture of the beautiful blue sky and the sun. But, I couldn't. There was already an employee waiting for me, and we needed to get things started. So after all the employees got in and I had done all the things that needed to be done before opening the bank, I went out, changed the lens, and took several pictures. I got this. This is the sun flare I wanted.
