That’s why when I found out that this month’s theme for the Creativity Project is Sun Flare, I was a bit apprehensive.
I got some great tips from my sister-in-law and managed to get some practice in during our vacation.
A few days later, we visited two more wineries in the area –Quail’s Gate and Mission Hill. I can’t tell you much about the wines, because I didn’t have any. I was the designated driver. My sisters-in-law wanted to try the wines and get a few bottles; I mainly wanted to take pictures. Quail’s Gate had a gorgeous view out back, overlooking Lake Okanagan. Mission Hill (below) felt super exclusive from the moment you drive through its gate. Everything was so… polished and sleek.
This one below was taken when we visited with one of Chris’ friends last week. They had set up the bouncy castle for the kids to play with, while the grown-ups chatted.
What I found is that getting sun flares in the photos is not as difficult as I’d thought it might be, but I still need to get more practice in to get the exact effect that I want.
Now do head on over to Sharon’s blog (The Covert Lens) and check out her gorgeous sun flare photos and then visit the other members participating The Creativity Project to complete the circle. I am sure you will be blown away by how beautiful their photos are.
Oh, please do visit the Creativity Project on our new Facebook page that Katherine (Sound Like Rain) created for us. Please feel free to ‘Like’ us and share your sun flare photos with us there. We’d love to see you there!
