The sky has some of the most beautiful photographs just waiting to be captured, but only if you’re watching. Images like this come and go so quickly, and most of them are truly once in a lifetime shots since most of them will never happen the same way again. This orange streak of sunshine worked it’s way through these delicate clouds and turned an otherwise flat, uninteresting sky into a scene with color, definition, and feeling. Taken with a Zeiss 100mm Makro Planar lens, which isn’t really the right tool for the job, but it was all I had a available at the time. And, I’m glad it was available because this image was completely different within 10 seconds.
