This is a composite of 23 images. The camera was set to go off every 5 minutes. The lens was set at manual to avoid any messing up with the AF. So, the sun is not shot in close up. That is the natural size of it. Once the sun was set I did a last image to have all the gradients in the sky as a background.
Getting back home I put all 23 images together to present it all together.
