Rays of the Sun

I took the accompanying photograph in between rounds of a series of thunderstorms that rumbled through the southern portion of Michigan's Wayne County last night. I liked the contrast between the blue skies, the black clouds, and the rays of light shining from the obscured sun.

The upper right-hand corner of the picture has the best rays, though my digital camera did not quite capture the full effect of the diffused sunlight.

A better image would have been achieved with this window of light and blue sky surrounded by the all-encompassing black clouds, but my efforts to catch such a panoramic image did not simultaneously produce the ray effect.
