Distant Rays


Distant Rays

Photographers like what they call “God Rays” or crepuscular rays. They make an interesting aspect to an image. The rays are formed when sunlight shines through small openings in the clouds. They are more noticeable when seen against a darker background.

Travelling west of Calgary, near Morley, Alberta on the Trans-Canada Highway, I spotted this scene, and knew it would make a great image. I chose to post process in black and white to accentuate the texture in the clouds.

In the best light…
