I Heart Photos Challenge - Sun Flare

If there is one thing that there is plenty of in Arizona, it's sunlight, and while that can make for an absolutely unbearable summer, it can also be a photographer's dream. One day, while taking advantage of the late afternoon light and getting some shots of my daughter in the backyard, I managed to capture this image, and to this day, it is one of my favorite photos of her. 

Try to explain it rationally all you want--sun flare on the lens, a bird or airplane capturing her attention at just the right moment, a mere coincidence--it's photos like this that just have a way of rekindling our belief in guardian angels. And perhaps, that day, Cadence and I caught a glimpse of ours.
