The Sun Fairy

Hiking in the White mountains National Park is so amazing. You see so many interesting aspects of nature that are real and natural. This photo is real, but it brings out the child-like imagination in me. I am writing some children's books and this photo made me think of the Sun Fairy. Every time I see a lens flair, I think it's the Sun Fairy playing with us.
