When you point the camera directly at the sun, the harsh bright light is overwhelming. Here the light has been managed with a narrow aperture of f/16. This also brings the whole frame into sharp focus. The silhouettes of a long line of trees are clearly seen. The sun is partly covered by dark clouds and light from the sun bursts out from behind clouds.
I captured the image last month in Vasai, Maharashtra. It was beyond 7 in the evening and the sun was close to the horizon. It was a sultry day and the warm colours in the sky show this.
Focal length was 55 mm and ISO was at 100. Metering mode was Evaluative and camera settings were Manual.
