Hope you’re not tired of the Wednesday Sunset theme that has been going on these past few weeks.  As I mentioned previously, all of these images were taken during an exceptionally beautiful Summer sunset on August 21st.  This was the start of the show and I managed to catch the small sunburst (or sun star) as the sun descended beneath the trees across the harbor.  For those who are interested, the trick to these sunbursts is in part the lens you use but also to close down the lens as far as possible (f/16-22 will do).  Then you need something to obstruct the majority of the sun’s light and leave a sliver.  You can approximate this by squinting at the setting sun and get a sense of where to aim the camera to achieve the effect.
