Shooting into the morning sun

May is my favourite month to photograph in...until the magical light returns again in September! May is just so special when the sun shines. The colours are beautiful and the light is still soft but strong enough to make the magic happen!
Each morning I have been going for a walk at about 7am and here are a selection of the images I have taken into the sunshine. As the sun gets higher into the sky, it is more difficult to create these images but it's really fun to experiment with the sun shining through trees or flowers. To get the flare, you have to be a little patient and move until you get it. It takes a little practice but it always brings me joy.
I hope this inspires you to have a go! xo
