This shot turned out to be pretty good considering the fact that I was not looking through the viewfinder when it was captured! Since it was too bright to look at the sun directly though the camera, I just pointed to the west to take a 'test' shot. Apparently it was my lucky day, and I ended up with this image.
Of course the original photo wasn't that great, as you might have guessed. A crop and few color tweaks in Lightroom resulted in this image - which has turned out to be a good desktop wallpaper item ;-)
