And The Heavens Parted

In the photography world, these are occurences of the sun breaking through the clouds are called several things, but usually I hear them referred to as “God Rays”. This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to photograph the phenomenon, but it was quite spectacular. They only last a minute in one spot usually before they’re gone, so I’m fortunate to have captured this one right over Alcatraz.
