Details:
On 13 and 14 June the setting Sun appeared to roll down the slope of a hill behind Murambi suburb in Mutare.  This is shown in a two-part x 60 speed time-lapse video that has been uploaded to YouTube at https://youtu.be/xgR-XuAV6C8   In the accompanying unusual 7 second animation (adapted from the second part of the video) the sun has been kept center frame in each of 38 still photographs taken over a six minute interval, so that the Sun remains stationary and the horizon moves relative to it with dramatic effect. The images were captured using a tripod mounted Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 compact camera in sunset scene mode with an improvised solar filter (consisting of exposed x-ray film) attached to the front of the x60 zoom lens.
