If my uncle did not bother telling me to take a picture of this sunset, then this picture would’ve not existed at all. I hesitated, remembering that it might damage the lens/sensor/shutter/whatnot when the camera is exposed to such intense, direct light. I wouldn’t be peeking into the viewfinder anyway so I made a go for it and pressed away. Ah, the spontaneity, the impulsiveness. Something as beautiful as this certainly didn’t have to be part of those “Where-the-heck-is-the-camera-I-need-to-immortalize-this-right-now” moments I’ve been having.
P.S. I Googled about the sun exposure/camera damage topic and it seems like the damage can occur if the exposure lasts for a long period of time.
