What does it mean: "Sitting with the sun on my face..."? I don't entirely understand that expression exactly.

This phrase is from my American grammar book.

    Sitting with the sun shining on your face. Shining is the main thing the sun is known for. Sep 23 at 15:35
  • Or sun meaning sunlight. Sep 23 at 15:55

The main action is sitting. The rest of the phrase modifies the main action: How are you sitting? You are sitting such that the sun is [shining] on your face.
