Amaro, Sierra and Walden are just a few of the pretty names now associated with Instagram filters. But nothing beats a natural filter, created not by apps but by capturing a sudden flood of light in your lens.

As we were scrolling through pictures for my “Autumn Splendor” post, a number of images were faded with overexposure and speckled with gorgeous solar flares.

Since I love me a good flare, here are a few of those naturally altered shots. I think #nofilter applies, right?
