As I was fishing on Grizzly Island in Northern California, near the town of Fairfield, here in the United States, I happened to look up at the sky and I saw this huge “SUN RING OVER GRIZZLY ISLAND”, and I couldn’t help but get out my camera and put fishing on the back burner for a while. I don’t often see these gorgeous rings around the sun, so when I do see them, I like to take full advantage of my Canon EOS 60D and my Canon 18-135MM AF IS Macro Telephoto lens. Even with the lens set at 18MM, I wasn’t able to get the entire ring in the shot. So, I settled for framing in the house at the bottom of the shot so that you could get some aspect as to the size of the ring. The only thing I did in Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0 was remove 10% of the brightness filter, add 20% of contrast and hit the auto sharpen filter one time. Other than that, this shot is pretty much as the camera would see it if I had put a Polarizing filter over the lens to remove some of the overall haze in the sky. With the sun in it’s current possition, the 110 year old house took on a silhouetted image.
