The Morning Star...

Cropped, requested by a friend :)

 

How these beams appear like this:

All what I do is just moving slowly until I see the beams refracted over the tree branches through the tiny holes between them, then take many shots and choose the most beamy one. The secret is to take the shot with something bound or surround the sun so it refracts the beams to more than one angle to look like a star for the lens, not for our eyes, as the lens perform as another surface to absorb a part of the sun light to make separated beams.

 

Physics Physics Physics !!!! I love Physics :D
