Monster Sun
Colorado, on Sep 13, 2003

I've been a bit envious that other parts of the world seem to get some pretty interesting photos. I've seen virtually nothing out ot the ordinary for some time in southern Colorado. But this morning, Sep 13 at 8 AM the Sun seemed very bright. It was a very clear day for a change. Took this photo. I had to scale down the brighness about 30% and raise contrast about 25% to bring out the detail. I took a similar photo some months ago. The object is in the same relative position but is larger. Also the ‘winged effect’ was not present then.
