Week 2 - Lighting Moment


That bright orange-reddish circle is the sun during a winter sunrise in Madrid, January 2020. Usually, we would not have been able to see the outline of the sun so clearly, but the amount of fog/pollution that was in the air that day made the sight of this color and figure so visible. The sky has a slight gradient from a pale coral to a pale coral/greyish color in the sky as you it gets closer to the level of the city. And the fact that the light from the sun is coming directly from behind the buildings in the front of the image creates a backlight that makes the buildings much darker than what they were in person when the image was taken.
