Eye of Sun

Believe it or not, this is the sun as I saw it this morning. High clouds burned with faint color, as a layer of darker mist wafted across the skies...the resulting photo is this unexpectedly eerie picture -- Eye of Sun. Brrrrr. . .

Many of the pictures I post are those I take just outside my kitchen door in the skies above our neighbor's fence. This photo is no exception. Our neighbor's roofline is just below and between those two trees. This picture is the best of five I was able to click, before the mists completely covered the sun.

And yes, I practically wear my camera like a piece of jewelry. One just never knows what unexpected thing might pop into view.

Love it! I look to the sky much more now and still seem to miss all the good stuff. Your perception of the unique and interesting never fails to fasinate me. I know how fast clouds can move and can only assume you are never without a camera.

My first thought was, This is Awesome. Then I saw Wendy said the same thing :)

I love it, it seems mystical to me.

Terrific shots. I love that you "wear" your camera and can produce photos without the darkroom fumes, chemicals all over and trays of developer and stop bath to navigate. I started in the darkroom 40 yeara s ago mand am a HUGE fan of didgital. w are unleashed to shoot until the meory card is full. So cool!!
Thank you for your visits to Tampa Florida Photo and your very welcome comments. I have two blogs with City Daily Photo and although both are my dear and much loved children, TAMPA DAILY PHOTO is my first and "favorite"...don't tell Tampa Florida Photo, OK? I hope you will visit it, too, and find it equally as fun, enlightening and entertaining.

DO visit me again, soon!! I'm enjoying your world as well. Very right brain and comforting.
