God Rays
November 29, 2009

God rays are in cartoons, movies, and every day life in general. Photography wouldn’t be where it is today without God Rays. Whether the soundtrack to God rays is organs playing or a subtle choir singing ahhh, God rays are awesome, a good God ray shot will trump a sunset or rainbow shot any day.

Keith doesn’t know it but he’s in the presence of God. Three ish gods to be exact.

Sometimes interesting framing can make a photograph incredibly spectacular. I’ll save that for another post but here’s a preview. Taken By Ryan Riley.

I went out for a second time during the day. It might seem like awesome to have two sessions in a day but when it’s 50 degrees below freezing and your wetsuit is wet from the last use, things aren’t so lush… Taken by Ryan.
