Now, the Sun is too low for the blue tints to be visible. As the Sun is disappearing behind the horizon and is reducing in a flat and bright bar, the yellow is vanishing to the profit of the green: it's the famous "Rayon vert" of Jules Verne's book.
The vertical bar seen in front of the sun, at the right of its center, is probably a mirage of a cloud summit.
