Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

by Andrea O'Connell

The challenge this week is to capture the sun!  I usually battle with the sun when developing images…. When there’s too much sun-glare it can wreak havoc on an image.   So, it’s nice, for a change, to have an occasion to relish the sun!

    Lovely photos; I am a Floridian, so I appreciate seeing Florida so well represented here; that sky, spoonbill and flower are all beautiful. Thanks for sharing and visiting my blog.
