It seems that I am often chasing the sun. I expected a clear sky this morning according to the forecast but, as is often the case, it was mostly cloudy. However, I noticed a sliver of clear sky in the east just above horizon. I suspected that there might be an opportunity for a few minutes of intense light. I hopped in the van and drove about 15 minutes in an easterly direction before the sun lit up the clouds. It only lasted for a few minutes but it was all worth it.
