You might need that flash even when the sun's out

It seems counter-intuitive to use a flash when shooting directly into the sun, but that’s just what was done in this snowmobiling shot from Finland. One hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle, the sun only peeks above the horizon at midday, and gave some very interesting light behind these snow-touring friends. To ensure the snowmobile and fronts of their faces were illuminated, an external flash was used so there wouldn’t be any backlighting problems.
