Flickr member paolo g monti took this terrific image of sun rays coming through trees on a hillside. The lighting in this image is fantastic.
South ridge of Mt. Race, Massachusetts.
I took a hike along this great ridge to inspect a section of the Appalachian Trail that I maintain. Not much work to do this day but the views were terrific. This is looking southeast back into Salisbury, Connecticut and Twin Lakes.
As I got out onto the exposed part of the ridge the sun was breaking out and the sun rays looked like they might make a nice image. It’s tough to process sun rays in a way that doesn’t kill the rest of the image. I tried using Apple’s Photos but Lightroom did a much better job so this is processed with it.
My flickr contact and friend Gary Sharp took this picture near the summit of Humbug Mountain on the southern Oregon coast with his iPhone 7 and the Hipstamatic app.
