Default High Sun Question

For some reason, I remember someone here saying that when your in high sun conditions, you can mitigate it by shooting down (since the sun is illuminating the top)

I'm on a trip and debating going up to an observation deck. Curious how high sun would impact a shot taking from 70 stories above.

I'm sure if you could make it interesting it'd be alright. You could get hit with an "extreme angle" rejection though.

But yeah, just shoot some pics. Can't hurt to see what ya get.

Different sun angles, but all could be considered "high" if taken from ground level. Regardless, all have the interest factor in their favor.
