Letterbox Sunset behind Cumulus Downpour.
On New Year’s Day a cumulus cloud developed in the late afternoon behind Chikanga to the southwest of Mutare which produced some downpours through a gap close to the horizon into which the setting Sun descended to produce a Letterbox Sunset veiled by moving curtains of rain. This is captured in the accompanying 20 video frame montage in which the Sun changes size and shape as it passes behind rain in a gap between cloud and the landscape beneath.
