The sun is an important part of photography. Catch first light in the morning for those yellow light filled mood moments or catch the golden light of late afternoon for rich texture in our photos. You can even catch interesting sunlight before it rises in the morning and after it sets in the evening, but how about the sun as a subject of a photo? Not just a second fiddle light source on some interesting subject, but actually getting top billing in a photo. In this photo taken at a local beach in the late afternoon the sun was in position to act as the mother of all light bulbs for this lamp post. it gives new meaning to the term solar power.
