Thank you all -- there is much more to this than I anticipated and I
will try to absorb the info.
What started this was an attempt to photograph the sunrise in a rural
area. Not just before sunrise, when the sky and clouds are
illuminated, but just after. I don't think it possible to describe
the mornings here, but to make an analogy, it looks as if there is a
huge conflagration in the next field each morning at about 5:00am.
When the sun breaches the horizon, it is a flaming ball of intense,
bright, flickering orange, that appears almost "sky" sized. However,
it appears as nothing more than a disappointing white circle in
photos. Someone suggested using a pair of polarized sunglasses as a
filter, but this changes only the surrounding colours - sky/trees/
cornfields, while the sun remains a burnout. I am not looking
directly at the sun, but using the camera screen to focus. And I do
know that pointing the camera at the sun for long periods will damage
it. I just want to know how they manage to do such things
commercially and to preserve the memory for myself.
