Taken with a 400mm lens. The scene is about 2 kms away and is a small crop of the whole frame. Just goes to show that landscapers don't always have to use a wide angle!!
The glow was one of those atmospheric quirks that occurred because of a very small window in a low cloud base that distorted the strong sunlight coming from just above the cloud base. A once in a lifetime opportunity... if you happended to have a 100 - 400mm lens on you at the time!!
