I wish I could've gotten something better, but I just didn't have any time. I took this on the way to work as a last resort because I wanted to enter. The outcome is a bit meh, but whatever.

Impressive stacked hills effect and crepuscular rays. The glare from the sun peek is a distraction. Overall, good effort considering the acute angle to the sun. 7
