Notes

1/800th of a second at f/11, ISO 160 at 400mm. I used a Canon EF 70-200mm L Series lens and 2X teleconverter III on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

Description

Smoke from a forest fire enables direct viewing and photography of the sun. I was on a mountaintop to capture the moon setting under a penumbral eclipse, and the sun rose into this layer of smoke on the opposite horizon moments later.

You can even see a couple of sunspots on the sun!
