Russian Smoke

Newer Older

Sunset through the haze of smoke created by wildfires in Russia. Note the sunspots in the upper left midline of the sun. The tips of the trees are silhouetted against the sun but appear to be standing on the north shore mountains. Everything appears dark because I had to under expose like crazy to get the sun to show the way it looked to the eye. This is just one of about 30 attempts.

    Beautifully done Roger. It looks like a miniature artwork. Thanks for sharing the story behind the image.
