Today’s “Picture of the Day” features a red setting sun that appears to be about 20 times it’s actual size. Every time I see this phenomenon I just have to stand and stare at it for a minute or two. I hope you like this capture. It was taken by a wonderful photographer who wishes to remain anonymous, but you can see more of his photos at www.flickr.com/photos/halfrain/. Here are the camera and settings used to capture this image:
Camera: Sigma SD1
Focal length: 600mm
