The Sun's Exploding

As I drove to the doctor yesterday morning, I was struck by the way the sun looked. It looked like it was exploding.


Keep in mind that these photos were taken from a (slowly! safety first!) moving car. Hence the blurry-ness.
Doesn't it look like the sun is just bursting out of it's... shell? I just couldn't stop staring. Or trying to drive on ice covered roads while taking pictures.

I also thought this could give you an appreciation of where I live. Surrounded by corn and soy-bean fields.

(Although, this is way further out of town than I live. Couldn't find a doctor I liked in town so I go to the neighboring village.)

(Hahaha village. I feel like next thing you know I'm going to be bartering for salt and flour.)

That's the world from Podunk, Indiana. How are things in your neck of the woods? Bitterly cold with a side of wind? (Oh, maybe that's just here...)

Wow, beautiful pics of the sun. But, I could not live in a place that rural. I am in Boston by the water and would not want it any other way!
