Downward Fan of Crepuscular Rays

The perspective effect is very strong in this image so you have to remind yourself that these rays are actually parallel in space. The wide angle here and the horizontal extent near the trees suggests that the dark patch of cloud covering the sun was probably similar in size to the field I was standing in.

All the rays trace back toward the sun's disc, which is visible through thin cloud.
