Lens flare is popular enough that some photographers are resorting to Photoshop and other tricks to create it. In the image above we see an example of natural lens flare creating a halo around the sun. As can be seen, this ‘ring of fire’ effect is caused by the light source directly centered in the lens. Modern lenses are well coated to prevent flare, and in the image below, even a slight tilt in the camera angle (in this case to accentuate the sky) plus a larger aperture, made the ring flare vanish.
"The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
