Last week I used another one of  the photos I took last winter to create some more products on zazzle:  Shining brightly in the pale crystal blue morning sky the sun creates an array of light orbs hanging in the air like a chandelier above the snow-covered forest near Fox Creek, Rainier, Oregon. Beyond the wintry snow-covered ferns and fallen branches, Fox Creek meanders unseen through the trees on its way towards the Columbia River.

Last week I created a series of  products on zazzle.com using one of my photos I took last winter in which a double arc of light orbs hang in the air over a wintry forest scene, as the morning sun shines brightly down from the crystal blue sky through the moss and snow-covered tree branches to the glistening tangle of fallen branches on the forest floor as Fox Creek meanders unseen through the trees.

I suppose I have to thank my kids for missing the school bus the other week.

Why? Because, on the way home from the school I noticed the sun shining through the fog and decided to whip out my camera. ( Luckily I had my camera on me. I am trying to get in the habit of taking it every where. I can not count the times I have missed a great picture because I forgot to bring it along, like the morning on the way out of the school parking lot when it was foggy and the sun came out and illuminated the fog behind a grouping of trees. I was kicking myself all the way home for having forgotten my camera that day). You never know when you will come across something that moves you and the artist in you demands you take a photo for reference later.

Early Morning Sun Rays #1 print


The sun was so bright streaming through the trees that I had to shoot virtually blind on most of these. I would aim as best as I could toward my desired focal point and click hoping I’d gotten it, without really being sure because all I could see through the viewfinder was a bright glare.

It is really important to make sure to check the settings on a digital camera. I normally leave mine on the highest resolution setting  possible, however I had recently put it on low resolution for some pictures I took for the sole purpose of illustrating my blog posts on framing and for my post on recycling candles. I had already taken several pictures when I realized I had not returned the settings to high resolution. which is too bad because the second of these is one of my favorites of the ones I took that day.

I love how the sunburst causes such a contrast with the deep early morning forested shade. It is all so peaceful and ethereal in its beauty. The light is not often so perfect for taking such great photos. I got a bit carried away and took around 40 in very short order. The refracted light in the camera lens also caused interesting patterns of red and blue hexagons to appear in the sunburst images.

Once I had several images that I felt captured the gloriousness of the bright sunburst I hiked in a bit further and started taking pictures of the more delicate effects of the sun rays themselves.
