Sun Rays at Pultneyville

Water, rocks, clouds, sun rays, and a birdLast summer we visited Pultneyville, NY (I’ve mentioned it before, in one of the posts that’s over on my web site instead of here on the blog), and I captured this image out on the beach, looking northeast along the Lake Ontario shoreline. I love the light in this picture, with the sun rays coming through the dramatic clouds and reflecting off the water. These rays are sometimes called crepuscular rays, from the Latin word for twilight, because they are most often seen around twilight or dawn. In this case, though, the sun is obviously too high for it to be dawn, so they’re just sun rays. Nothing complicated, but lovely to look at.
