Flag Day isn't Always June 14th
I intend to go out and take a picture of Old Glory today. I'm going to look for a place where the sunlight illuminates the area like a spotlight for dramatic effect.
Sorry, but that is not how it is done. You would be fortunate to find those ingredients for a photograph if you spent an entire year intentionally looking. It will almost always come about as an aside to something else you are doing. In this case, I was (what else) filming birds when the sun lit up this spot across the river. I certainly couldn't have planned it.
