Andy, the link leads you to a previous IOTW, namely Beryl's feeding birds!

Thank you Reinardina and cheers Mick for the correction. Lots of stress on my plate at present and little time - which has a knock on effect when things are rushed

Sorry to hear that Andy. Hope things will settle down soon.

Back to the IOTW.

It is a very interesting shot, as the Sun seems to be providing itself (as the source of light) with the illusion of being oval in form, in what appears to be quite a clear sky. My guess is that the light is actually being bent or distorted over the distance it travels in a 'lens effect' provided by the heat within the Earth's atmosphere; rather than a distortion due to the camera lens or post processing.

That's the effect you get with a low sun, as it's light is entering the atmosphere at an angle, so increasing it's scattering by the extra atmosphere it has to pass through.  :o

Yes spot on there oldboy re: effects. I actually did very little in post processing on this one. In fact I did not mean to add the one I did but rather this one of the lone photographer shooting the sun. Now I look the one I did upload first is better though.

It's the sort of shot that appears in holiday brochures.  :tup:

Cracking shots Paul.

And you are right OB it must be to do with the angle as zooming in on this shot the moon has a similar oval aspect I had not noticed before.
