yeah the sun is out!!


This photo inspired by the marvelous Auntie P. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!


No manipulation... not sure how that sun ray ended up looking like it was going through my hand but I'm guessing it was a flare from the lens (and others seem to concur).

    @maria... too bad we couldn't bottle this up somewhere and just pull it off the shelf when we need it huh!

    Thanks for making this image available on a CC licence. I work for the MS Trust, a UK charity, and have used it to illustrate an article on vitamin D and multiple sclerosis in Open Door, our free, quarterly newsletter and in the online version. The image gives the impression of a pill of sunlight, which fits rather well.

    You can see the page (and download the pdf of the print version) at the MS Trust website
