A Little Ray of Sunshine...
May 2006 Fred Schaad

A Little Ray of Sunshine...

Kelowna, BC

...on a cloudy day.

Spring has finally arrived here in the Okanagan. This image was made at one of the local parks
overlooking the lake. The day was sunny when we left the house but by the time we arrived at our
favourite location in the park, the clouds had rolled in and only the occasional patch of sun would
peek through to light up the Arrowleaf Balsamroot (desert sunflowers).

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS
Handheld, Moose Peterson Warming Polarizer, 1/400s, f/6.3, ISO 200, No flash full exif

other sizes: small medium original
