A wonderful moody photo of a sun trying to shine. I hope it did later on.

If you hadn't said the sun wanted to shine. I would have thought it was the moon. Great shot.

What a great picture. I love the roundness of the sun when it is almost filtered out.

I certainly hope the sun was able to break through all these clouds. But if not, you still made a great capture.

lovely capture!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Carletta -- we have lived a lot of those sorts of days but never have taken such a good picture of it! Anyway, that cold, barely there sun is very typical for Oregon. We say "the sun's trying hard." I hope your sun finally made it through.

Regina said...

Amazing one!

Pietro said...

A dream image, Carletta!

Japa said...

The sun peeking on thick clouds. A moody sky, good capture.

Ebie said...

Mystically beautiful! I thought it was the moon!

@nemonen said...

Wonderful photo. The sun is just on its way to shine through.

Eaglesbrother said...

All that is needed is a slight breeze to rush the clouds away to allow that sun to peek through.
Good shot.

Marites said...

i thought it's the moon:) The clouds are winning over, it seems. Nice capture!

Laura Hegfield said...

It sure did...and there it is, it always is even when we think it's missing...the sun is always present. Beautiful.

happily retired gal said...

What a magnificent photo ... so much depth and interest with just a touch of blue. I could stare at it for a long time. Love the way you 'frame' your images these days ;-)
Hugs and blessings,
