The solar rays, which seem to originate from the Sun when masked by a distant obstacle (a cloud for example), finish to join to the antisolar point (i.e. to a point located at the opposite of the Sun). Those rays faintly contrasted cross all the canopy of heaven to converge anew. This is what is called anticrepuscular rays. They are very inconspicuous, so are generally invisible... except for the amateur who know them.
In this snapshot, the anticrepuscular rays are inclined by about 45 degrees. They emanate from clouds masking the Sun.
Advice: to better see those inconspicuous anticrepuscular rays, download the 1024x768 pixels picture and reduce it.
