Gigantic Sunrise

It’s not photoshopped, or any kind of shopped – it’s the “light haze” that makes this rising sun appear so gigantic. I can’t even focus as I try to shoot it, there is so much refracted light. I just have to trust, as I snap the shutter, that the camera can figure out how to manage it. Once again, I focused on the reflection; it was the only line the camera could focus on; the rest is just a blur. I am using my smaller Lumix, it doesn’t have a viewfinder, so it is much harder to see what you are shooting.


It’s going to be HOT today. For me, anyway, anything above 22°C / 72°F is getting a little heated up. 😉


Have a great day, Kuwait.

  3. Oh, Ansam, you have had a difficult winter. I hope all the allergies are fading away and you will have only good days from now on!

    LOL, Jonyboy, early this morning, it was heavenly, but it heated up fast, didn’t it? I, too, HATE to close the windows. I hope you had a great day.

  5. Thank you, Fahad! No sunrise photo today; there is a “light haze” again, and the sun can barely shine through the thick haze. It almost looks like rain. Temperatures are up around 30°C. Aargh.
