I was just messing around yesterday. I took this shot of the sun at 200mm, ISO 100, f/32, 1/8000th. I noticed this odd-looking semicircle to the right of the sun. Any ideas?

IMHO it's lens flare.

Yup. If you've got a UV filter then remove it (although I'd expect worse lens flare than this with a filter).

It just seemed like an odd shape to be flare. Thanks for your opinions. :) BTW, no filter was attached.
