Midday Sun
Washington, on June 16, 2003

I live in Washington State on the coast and I took this photo at 2:30 PM (14:30) Pacific Daylight Time today through my sunglasses with a digital Sony Cybershot (5mgpx) 2600 res. I then put it on my computer and did two "Illusion Effects" with Microsoft Picture It to see what I could get to stand out. The three dots at about 10 o'clock are simply reflections on my sunglass lens. The obvious planet-like object at 12 o'clock on the edge of the sun however is not a reflection and becomes very visible with the "Metal Bas Relief" effect and the "Plastic Wrap" effect.
