Yesterday I Went Out to Shoot a Sunset by Göran Strand

Yesterday I went out to shoot a sunset I’ve planned since last summer. This time of the year, the Sun passes right behind a big radar tower if you stand at the Swedish National Biathlon Arena in Östersund. The radar tower is located about 10 km away from the arena in a small village called Ås. I shoot the movie using my solar telescope to capture the structures on the Sun. The timing was perfect and the Sun looked really nice since it was full of sunspots and big filaments. Göran Strand
