Yesterday there was finally a break in the clouds so I grabbed the camera and headed to a nearby ridge to capture the sun going down.

I used a nearby Oak Tree as the silhouetted foreground and waited for the sun to almost disappear to give the sunburst effect. This image is the combination of 3 separate shots. One shot at f/22 to give the sun its star effect and then two at f/11. One was exposed for the sky and the other was overexposed. I blended the just the grass of the overexposed image into the darker image and then blended just the sun from the f/22 image.
