Last week I had gone to the park at sunrise to paint a particular scene, a scene I had painted before at sunset but I was not happy with the results.
When I got there the clouds had started moving in towards the sun and I knew I wasn't going to have the light I wanted. At sunrise the group of trees to the left get a blast of sunlight creating a nice contrast with the trees in the background. That wasn't going to happen today so I grabbed my camera and started taking photos to the right of me looking into the sun.
About a minute later the sun was swallowed up by the clouds and there would be no more sun that morning.
