The Star of Patagonia by Kris Delcourte

The picture was made during a photo workshop in Patagonia taking place in mid-April 2018. The trip was planned in the Autumn season to take benefit of the magnificent orange-reddish colours. It was taken on one of the few sunny bright days we had during the 10 day trip. The weather can change very quickly in Patagonia, but no matter whether it snows or a small clearing in the clouds can create spectacular light effects.

The art to capture the Sun as a star in the right position and to avoid lens flair was to be flexible and move myself with the camera a few inches to the left and right until the sunburst had exactly the size that I wanted: prominent enough to have the 'start effect' on the one hand and on the other, sufficiently hidden behind the dead tree to avoid unwanted optical artefacts.
