I didn't have my settings right in my camera and it doesn't really do justice to the partial solar eclipse that we saw in the sky yesterday...I only kept two pictures out of the few that I shot...I almost deleted this one but saw something different that made me take a second look at the optical illusion of a face behind the sun and the rainbow prism like flare. I also see a faint outline of a heart!

We had pouring down rain in the morning and figured it would be too cloudy to shoot any pictures, but the weather changed and it stopped raining right before the eclipse and it stayed clear until after it was over....Then it continued raining again afterward.

Best View in Light-box! Thanks!

    Thank you for your comments....I am glad that I kept this one as I think it represents the theme
    of flare better than the first one that I posted earlier...It pays to compare ...It wasn't until I
    deepened the contrast today that I saw more than I did in the beginning...
