Into the Sun

I like to make photos when the sun is in front of me, or off to one side, and my subjects in between are “backlit.” This is not simple to do, because first we were all taught when younger not to look directly at the sun, but when you position yourself such that you are in a shady spot, and the direct sunlight is reduced, you can get some nice results, especially with trees as the main subject. If your camera allows you to adjust your lens aperture, close the lens down (higher aperture number such as f22) and you will get a “sparkle” effect. Here are three examples I made recently.
