Canon 7D, Nikon compatable Spiratone 1:8 f=500mm lens, 2x convertor, ND filter, Solar film, tripod and remote switch. The photo was taken at ISO 250 at 1/500 second.
As the sun was setting I sought out a location without trees to see the last of the sunset. As the sun set lower and lower behind some thin bands of clouds, the colors intensified with deep oranges, maroons,with the shadow of Venus became a red dot rather than the black silhouette on sun.
