Sun flares? by sailingmusic

Sun flares?

I thought this looked like you could actually see the sun flares on this. Anyone know why that came out like that? I had my big tele lens on and I did crop this some. Thanks for stopping in to see this shot. Love all your comments, favs and views.
gorgeous, so big!

I don't know if it is official "flares" or what, but it is cool! Like superheated air dancing around it. I love this. And that sign you can barely see, and the tree....makes this really neat! Fav!

Incredible sun, so large. Sorry, can't give you technical advice.

Try shooting at a smaller aperture to get the sun flares - f/22. It's a really nice photo.

When the sun is this low on the horizon, the light has to pass through a thick layer of air. This air is moving, so the edge of the sun doesn't show as a line but gets broken up. Since you used a big tele this effect gets exaggerated.
Hope this makes sense :)
