Some Setting Suns.
October in Mutare is the hottest and driest month of the year during which the Sun can be seen setting almost every day behind varying amounts of smoke haze (which filters its light to produce spectacular changes in colour) and scattered late afternoon cloud (which creates beautiful patterns in front of it). Here is a montage of nine close-up pictures taken while the Sun was setting between 5.39 pm on the 12th and 5.46 pm on the 21st .
