Palm tree and sun 2  


Sometimes you hide from the sun, sometimes you seek it out

Description

I was on a photo shoot for a client and ducked into the shade of the palm tree to chimp the last few photos I had taken. I took another step back and the sun hit me, so I figured it was as good a time as any to grab something for stock.
