I almost didn’t post this one. When I was framing it, I felt my retinae burning and wasn’t sure if I was capturing the effect I imagined. The effect was that the longer you stare into this sunburst, the wider it seems to be getting. While editing it, my doubts came back again as I played with exposures and sharpness, but dropping the contrast just a little started blinding me again and I realized I hit what I wanted.
At first, I thought the trees were pulling back from the piercing sunlight, but that is also a trick of the eye, and possibly due to some scary movies I’ve been watching lately. The whole scene is filled with a supernatural presence and I invite you to give in to the chills running up your spine while staring into the light!
