Shooting directly into the sun can often make a good photograph but flare or reflection from the sun can just as easily ruin the shot.
To overcome this I tend to use a very non-photographic piece of equipment…a fedora held out and above the lens. Using a good hat is not recommended. Mine tends to end up in the dust, getting stood on or just blowing away in the wind.
A field of Onion weed in the foreground dazzling in the sun. Calistris pines on the slope behind…the angle of the light is highlighting the red tinge on most of the trees. This is the pine in flower.
Both onion weed and Calitris pines are common in the Flinders Ranges. The technique though can work just about anywhere.
