Wildfire Sun in MI

LiamRowan Loc: Michigan
 
Our sunups and sundowns have been eye-popping here in mid-Michigan this week thanks to the western wildfires. The sun is an orange-ish ball outlined in red with no light bleeding into the sky around it. You can look right at the sun when it's many degrees above the horizon. It looks so fake that, had I not shot the image myself, I'd have bet $$ it wasn't real.

It is a 2-shot composite to keep the foreground from being underexposed.

(The deer just wandered into the scene!). My brother just sent me an article saying it's a bad idea to look at these smoke-screened suns because the smoke doesn't filter the UV rays!

The low red sun gives this I mage an other-worldly look. Thanx for sharing!
