Sun distortion page 5

So, my solar distortion and green flash are now digital. Next 7 thumbnail pages have been photographed 2009 at my new vantage point at sea level. Here is a number of facts to keep in mind while going through pictures.
Each sunset or sunrise is separated from each other by a line.
In each image its true pixel size is given (frame not included), while in the web the resolution is usually a lot smaller. Size is given to allow to check whether image size would suit to intended print size. In general many of the composites look at best only modest due to huge shrink from the original. However, in all composites, where the sun is shown in full width, its diameter in original composite is approximately 1200 pixels. Checking single solar images gives a hint what is shown also in the large composites if they are blown to full size.
It is quite evident that I have become bored to "normal" composites. Therefore a more visual approach has been used in many cases in composing these images. They are not just visually more appealing but also expose clearly the behaviour of distortions. In some cases composite itself remains same while backgroung colour is varied.
