The light is spectacular enhanced by the positioning of the clouds, producing beautiful rays radiating down to the silhouetted tree line that forms a solid base to the image.
Photography is all aout light and you have made full advantage of the conditions presented and captured a very fine shot, Keith

You've captured the rays well, and I like the silhouettes too, beautiful sky. I wonder if it would benefit the image to make it letter-box format, cropping to below the bright sun?

As a photographer, one does become more aware of the skies on a daily basis I am always saying to my hubs, look at that sky and fluffy clouds are a fave, well done for taking the opportunity to capture this one
