Even a low sun can be dangerously bright ! Always use proper filters and protect your eyes.
Several days of thick haze meant that the sun was completely obscured even before it set.
This series shows one evening where the density was enough to dim the sun but not hide it completely.
Although not as spectacular as some sea level sunsets the distortion caused by different layers of air is still quite distinct.
