Light & shadow on a native built roof

I waited patiently until the sun was
positioned to project these beautiful
light rays on the roof beams. A short
time after the shot they disappeared.

The light and texture caught my eye.

One of the best photo-skills to learn is 'to wait for the light'. You did, and it worked! Congratulations for being featured in PhotoFlash #102! #9717517
