Weekly Photo Challenge – Distort

Things appear distorted..

The Sun appears distorted on the horizon at dawn


This was an interesting shot I took this week earlier on.  The Sun totally appears to be distorted as it rises over the horizon at dawn.


The very next shot and the sun is no longer distorted.


I could see this while I was photographing it and I kept ducking out from the lens to double check.  I don’t know what caused this.  Maybe some of you do know.  If you do please enlighten me.

I feel it is our eyes that are responsible for seeing it this way and that it probably isn’t really like this.  I could ponder all day.  I look forward to hearing any and all explanations.

As an after thought and after looking again at this image I marvel at the fact of the likeness of this distortion to that of the Pharoahs sillouette.  What do you think?
