Taking back my sniveling

A few days ago, I was griping about the lousy weather here; after reading this CNN story about the storm that plowed through Europe, I changed my mind. Nobody DIED in this area; 34 people across Europe were killed by storms with 160 k/mph winds and severe rains. Thousands are still without electricity, and mass transit was hit hard, with airports cancelling dozens of flights and trains halted due to debris on the tracks. I had no idea the storm was so bad until I read Stars and Stripes (The US military-produced paper) this morning.

Of course, the pic I sent Susanna Cornett (posted on Cut on the Bias) doesn't bolster my griping about the weather, but it was nice (albeit cold) last month. (grin)

Greetings from Virginia where the weather is wonderfully, miserably wet after a record-breaking drought all summer long.

Did you get lucky or claim skill or coated lenses or the like in the fact that you got a nice flare without GLARE in the image facing straight into the sun?

Lovely image. Lighting is everything.

Susanna is on a roll. She posted an image from our place a few days ago. Is she becoming a PhotoBlogger?

It was pure, blind luck. I used a little 1.3 megapixel digital camera (a Christmas gift from friends), and somehow managed to get a spectacular shot.
