I took some sunset shots this evening and was surprised upon viewing to find this circle on several of the shots. I have been practising with lens flares but had never seen this before. Sigma 18-250 with no filter.

You did quite nicely in getting this flare.

Thanks, Bob! I’m changing from “what the heck is that?” to “Holy cow, you guys! Look what I did!” 😂. But I’m certainly going back to see if I can do it again.

This circular lens flare I think is much more pleasing than the more common linear flare. It is exactly hard to say how it was exactly created, but I suspect the main cause is the location of the sun so close to the centerline of the lens.

Thanks for looking and commenting, wdross. I was happily surprised and will be interested in seeing if I can recapture the circular flare.
