Because the sun's too calm for my pencil ;) and I want to use my little Lunt 35mm, I decide to sketch during the sun sets.

First of all, 10 minutes before the sun sets I sketched the different prom's

An airplane help me to define more or less a parallel to the horizon, however the horizon there is not horizontal...

At the end I had to sketch the deformations of the sun disk because of the refraction as well as the trees in the "far" foreground.

After digitalisation I invert the sketch and add a color calc.

Michel,

I almost missed the fine prominences because there is so much to look at that is not the sun.
I was trying to figure out in the lower right of the sun the two irregular columns illuminated on the right side but not illuminated on the left. Then I realized that must be smoke or steam and not trees (I think?).

Impressive and alluring capture.

Frank :)

Hi Frank, you'r right, I don't now what it is, probably an artefact from the scanner or while color and contrast adaptation ? Anyway this is not visible on the original sketch.  From my observing terrasse I only see trees and hills, not a single house nor plant so no smoke...

Thank you as always for your interest Frank
