I turned around and headed back to our street again this morning when I was leaving for church. The sun rays on the mountains looked awesome. I didn't get the best part captured though. When I got to church, I walked a ways to shoot the mountains again, and to attempt to get the spectacular sight I wanted.
Right in the middle of the photo, next to the biggest mountain peak, there are several bright spots. It was an unbelievable sight this morning, the sun glistening off the mountains in sparkles, almost. I believe the mountains across the Bay must have gotten the same freezing rain, and the snow was doing the same as it is here. It looked awesome, but I had a hard time getting it to look cool on the camera (of course). I've never seen anything like it.
At my parents' church. I had several free moments, waiting by myself, so I started playing with my camera's settings again. This is what I came up with.
