Rays of sunlight.
Here's another image from my morning hike last Friday. This one was taken from the road near our 1.8-m telescope looking east, back towards Tucson. The rays of sunlight radiate from behind the clouds with most of the foreground silhouetted. The brownish haze below the sun just above the mountains is actually smoke from the fire being blown back generally towards Tucson which is not quite visible in this image in all the morning haze and smoke. This image was taken at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/2000 seconds at f/8, ISO 200.
