Default Nature - God rays

This is possibly the only benefit of atmospheric dust and pollution...

The other evening the stricture of the light from the Sun through the clouds was really dramatic. I include here one shot that is completely untouched apart from resizing, The others I adjusted the overall levels in Photoshop elements, (not directly adjusting the colours, though this always given them a boost).
