Weird flare...

Or I just don't understand something I always thought the flare should come from the way a bright light source is, but check this out:



Here, sun comes from the top right corner. But flare goes from top-left to bottom right! How did that happen? I marked where sun comes from, and the "line" of flare - from a big blob, to two smaller bright spots.

Anyone know explanation? I first thought, maybe it flared from lens hood (like, sunlight reflected from the inside of lens hood and went into the lens)? But then, I think flare should start from about middle-left of the picture if it did that way...

Flare not always by sun. Maybe your glasses or sun glasses or ur watch reflected off onto his hair and into the lens. It just has to be brighter than the majority of the pic.

Probably someone's window It's almost impossible that it's something off of me since... I'm behind the camera
But yeah, I'll remember that... It's just a bit unusual - to see flare come from such an unexpected angle.
