Ever since I first became obsessed with this photography thing I was taught to, and have been trying to avoid lens flares religiously.
In 2013 though after seeing so many lovely images online with what I considered artistic lens flare, I decided to try this style for myself.
I even remembered back to a photography seminar I took many years ago with Robert Goerzen and Wilf Hatch where Wilf had encouraged us to break many of the photographic "rules" that we all learn, including shooting into the sun.
Here is another of my latest lens flare images. This one is of a wrecked catamaran in Ladysmith Harbour.
