Sun Behind The Clouds

When you point the camera directly at the sun, the harsh bright light is overwhelming. Here the light has been managed with a narrow aperture of f/16. This also brings the whole frame into sharp focus. The silhouettes of a long line of trees are clearly seen. The sun is partly covered by dark clouds and light from the sun bursts out from behind clouds.
