It is rainy season in Japan and last the few days have brought morning fog and afternoon clouds, sometimes with rain. It is warm and humid. I like it.
This afternoon there was a high overcast of strato-cumulus clouds with an angry looking sun trying to burn through it. It had a surreal look to it and I wanted to take a picture, but it was way too bright for my camera. Then I came up with an idea. I took this picture by placing one of the lenses of my sun glasses over the camera lens.
Of course Japan is the land of the rising sun. In the Shinto religion, the sun goddess, Amaterasu, is the highest of the gods (kami). She doesn't look very happy in this picture.
