Atmospheric Phenomenon During Sunset

at Karumba, Queensland Australia

Updated 9/8/02

These images, taken at sunset last month are over the Gulf of Carpentaria on the north side of Queensland span about 15 minutes in time. The optical distortion of the sun near the sea horizon due to an inversion layer over the ocean flattens and modifies the shape of the sun to bizarre shapes. For these shots, I use a 400mm telephoto at f/22 and anywhere from 1/250 to 1/1000 second exposures metering on the sky next to the sun. Fuji Superia Xtra 400 film was used for all shots.
