Exactly. And my issue is that my eyes see the sun as a perfect round disc in the haze and fog. So how do I capture that without blowing out highlights or ending up with a grossly underexposed foreground?

I'm thinking I need an ND filter, so I just ordered one. We'll see how it works. And the next time I see the sun filtered through fog, I'll try the ND filter and I'll try a shot with my 10-22mm to see how that lens handles it.
