On Sunday morning I woke up early for a long drive to Houston, TX. The sky was overcast and hinting of the 24 hours of rain that was to come. As I was driving and about to get on the highway, miraculously in the middle of the sky an opening appeared in the clouds and the bright morning sun poured through like a light waterfall.
I pulled over on the side of the road and snapped this photo. I was fortunate because I had my Canon 5D Mark II in the seat beside me with the 70-200mm lens attached. After I took about 5 shots I hopped in the car and continued. Within 30 seconds the opening was gone.
I’m making two versions available. First a color version:
Both are 1920 x 1280 so they should work for just about any desktop size. Just click through to get the larger version. And if you’d like to get access to the full size image I uploaded them to my Flickr account.
I hope you all enjoy, and I hope these bring a little sunshine into your life as well. Cheers!
