Sunbeams often charge through the clouds over California's scenic Bay Area - here, they illuminate Fremont from behind. Sometimes, they even bounce off the surface of the bay water and shine on the underside of clouds, but I haven't been able to take a picture of that.
I took this photograph while descending from Mission Peak.

Very beautiful how the orange sunbeams are spread over the town and the valley.
Good composition, beautiful colours, nice rolling hills on the foreground.
Best regards, Paul

How are you ? What are the results of the finals ? tearther or not tearther, that is the question. ;)
A shot taken at a magical moment. By looking at your shot, I can imagine the pleasure you had to attend such a spectacle. Very beautiful communion between all the elements : sky, nature and city. You well adjusted the luminosity. Your shot gives the desire to sit down there, on this attractive ground which seems so soft.
