    Excellent picture Clifton!!!
But I doubt you shot this as it is. The Sun seems to be refined through some software. No???

Levels, Crop and Un-sharp Mask were the tools used to adjust the scanned slide image Rahul. It's a straight shot with a 135mm lens and 81b warm-up filter :)

Thanks everyone, it's a simple recording of 3 things we really need, warmth, light & food. It must have struck a cord in a lot of people judging by the amount of responses :)
