Found this view of sunbeams over the ocean to be very beautiful so had to take a picture. Love the way the sunrays comes out of the clouds.
Maybe something divine is hiding behind the clouds?

    Isn’t it great when everything just seems to come together for a shot like that? That is one of those that come rarely to a person, especially when they happen to have a camera handy.
