Never Point Your Camera at the Sun

Gotta quit doing that.



  1. Having said that this was stunning on your site, I suppose that I can’t contradict myself here. It has a feel of a modern piece of celtic art.

  2. Ah, but you do it so well…

    The cloud is important. Without it, I wouldn’t know which way I was looking. Sort of grounds (if that’s the right word) the picture.

  3. Very unusually for me I’m wanting this to be more contrasty. The tonality is dominating the subject (although I do like John’s suggestion of modern celtic).

  4. Comparing the print of this to what I’ve posted here does make this look a bit flat.

  5. unless you have a hydrogen alpha filter. ( I have a chap who chases solar eclipses that works for me )

    I feel very hot, the landscape is barren, and the most interesting view is up.

  6. Not sure why not if safety precautions are undertaken. Everything just floats even the empty left third. That left third holds me the most I guess it’s the calming quality of all that ‘shadow’ before embarking again to feast on the other two thirds.

  7. Beautifully simple. I’m not sure that more contrast would suit me — I like the feeling of looking into the sun.
