The Sun in 2017

[Back to Gallery]

Tony Barker took the following images of the unusual 'Red Sun' seen over the UK on the 16th October 2017. This was caused by a combination of windblown dust from the Sahara and smoke from forest fires in Portugal. The images were taken at 12:09 and 14:05 local time respectively from Mickleover, Derby. Tony used a Fuji XT2 camera with XC50-230mm lens at 90mm on the first image and 230mm on the second. Each image is a combination of two different exposures using LR/Enfuse.   Images © Tony Barker.
