The photo above showing a set of eye-catching crepuscular rays was captured from the 20th floor of the building where I live in Narrow Neck Surfers Paradise, Australia. It was taken on July 15, 2023. The Sun had risen a short time ago and was able to break through the altostratus cloud deck, creating a "beam me up" spot on the sea surface. By following the converging ray pattern, it's easy to estimate the Sun's position -- near the top of the photo. Note also the glitter path at lower center.

Photo details: Taken with a Galaxy Samsung S22 Ultra Phone at 7:00 a.m. local time.
