Light: Gettin' Solar

It's all about the light lately!  First, they're "Gettin' Solar" on The Franklins' blog for Shoot -N- Tell Thursdays.  If you've got an image featuring solar flare or the sun, this challenge is for you.
A few weeks ago, I captured several images featuring solar flare at the Gonzalez-Schott wedding, but none as spectacular (if I do say so myself) as this image of the table setting, featuring a sunflower table arrangement and a gorgeous blue sky peeking in the window in the background.  I love it!

Next, they are celebrating "Light" at Simplicity.  You have got to see the entries - talk about gorgeous! 

This is my favorite self portrait, which heavily features sunflare.  I love it in both color and in black and white, but my entry will be the color version.

Sunflare...I'm learning to use you, not just have you happen by accident.  We will meet again, but always under my terms, such as in these cases!  :)
