I've got Flare

I don't know if any of you read The Pioneer Woman, but she is and idol in the blogging world - at least to me. She tells awesome stories and has wonderful photos. I mainly read her main blog, but she also blogs separately about homeschooling, home and garden, cooking, and photography.

Anyway, getting to the point.... Every once and a while she shares tips on photography. Today I was looking at her post on sun flare and decided to go out and give it a try. My eyes are just about worthless right now after staring directly into the sun a few times - but I like the results and am thankfull for the knowledge! I can't wait to incorporate sunflare with more pictures in the future.

Here are my test shots though....

I did edit these photos, but if you want you can click on any of the pictures which will take you to the flickr page. If you scroll down from there, you can see the unedited versions. :-)
