Description: It is a bit risky to point a telescope into the direction of the sun, but sometimes it's worth the risk! This scene was captured a few weeks ago from Noordpolderzijl in the north of the province of Groningen. The sunset in itself was already quite impressive but in combination with a passing stranger it becomes even more interesting ;-)

Imaged through a 130 mm F/11.5 Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope and a Canon EOS 550D camera under a very clear sky. 1/4000 sec on 100 ISO.
