Greetings. Today in the US we celebrate Groundhog Day -- a tradition not unrelated to Candlemas -- the when a large rodent predicts whether Spring will come in 6 weeks or if we still have to wait out another month and a half of Winter. In some traditional calendars, this would be the beginning of Spring or Autumn, rather than the midpoint of Summer or Winter.

All this gets me thinking about the sun. Perhaps yours is just starting to show itself more (or less) frequently now. Perhaps it's just appeared (or finally disappeared briefly) for the first time in a while. By the end of the month, the equinox is less than 4 weeks away, so hopefully everybody will see at least a little in this short month.

So let's go outside and take a photo including sunlight somehow. Sunrise, sunset, sun reflecting off of something or even casting a shadow. Can't get out, then maybe find a cat sleeping in a sunbeam. Go all lens-flarely like JJ Abrams, maybe? Be creative, it's all about fun.


Same rules (copy-pasta from before):

Photos must be taken during this month (after theme is announced?)
Photos must be taken by the posting member
Photos must be taken with a camera phone
Users post only one photo per entry
Users can change the entry only once
Users must name the phone they used (software would be nice too?)

Last three days of this month are for voting. Have fun and enjoy.

The sun finally showed itself two days ago and now the snow is melted almost completely. It's not as cold as it was before so that's awesome for me.

I just came back from a week long business trip. Wanted to post a picture taken from the hotel room window of a gloomy industrial landscape with the brown sea and grey sky without any sunlight at the background. Then I looked up from writing my report of the trip and noticed this cheerful light pattern on the office floor. The effect lasted all of about 5 minutes.

Taken today, Friday 17 Feb 2017, with Jolla 1.

Good that Rob gave a little freedom to theme. Here, in the middle of the forest, there is no possibility to take beautiful pictures of the sunset or sunrise...

I wanted picture somehow represent the contrast between life's ugliness and beauty, with the sun. I chose the object by chance, and I think the drops that reflecting the sun crowned it...

Taken with N9 and little cropping...

Too bad I don't have much chance to see "sunlight" in this part of the world. (London, UK). This topic is unfair for most of British :P

Quite right, Chen. My business trip was also just to another part of the UK. Still, if you look hard enough you might spot some sunlight, if only just for a few minutes
