Rays of Light through the Clouds

On the way up to Alston in north east Cumbria I captured this snap through the car window. It was more a test of camera and lens. The lens has “VR” meaning it should reduce camera shake at slow shutter speeds. As the car was moving quite fast up the hill this worked well. However the second problem came because there were fence posts every few yards that kept getting in the frame. So I put the new D300 camera onto the 6 frames a second burst mode and fired off a dozen exposures in a couple of seconds (trust me when I say that the sound the camera makes when it does this is really cool). Deleting 11 rubbish blurred images of fence posts left me with the image you see above. A worthwhile experiment with the new camera I felt.
